We talk often about how color has a huge impact on our spaces...cool hues are supposed to relax. Warm shades supposedly amp up the energy in a space. Boring rooms are made better (so we hear) from a healthy dose of bold color. But we're curious...how has color changed your home for the better?

I still remember the first bold wall paint color I ever used, in one of my first apartments. It was a blah boring studio without a lot of light but with a lot of beige. I didn't even try to brighten or lighten it up; I chose a dark, dramatic red orange, and it warmed the whole space up. It made a boring studio feel like a rich, cozy retreat. I've been hooked on color's transforming powers ever since.

We'd love to hear your color changing stories! Have you used lighter colors to make a room feel more spacious? Have you used dark, dramatic hues to spice up a particularly small space? Have you always been bold with color...or are you still finding your color legs in interiors? Share how color has transformed your home for the better in the comments below! We've love to hear about wall paint colors, accessories, DIY projects — any ways that color has impacted your home.
