Twice as Nice: Two Colors on the Wall

Choosing just one wall color you love can be a long process with much hemming and hawing and hanging paint chips and testing the light at different times of day. So why would anyone want to go through that twice? Well these lovely rooms should give you a clue. I've put together an inspiration gallery for you of twenty rooms that use two wall colors to lovely effect.

The top two rows show off rooms with two colors on separate walls while the bottom rows shows two colors used horizontally on all the walls. Both strategies give the room dimension and personality. You can use two colors close on the spectrum or two that compliment each other well.
