There’s no question about it: adding a little color is one of the easiest ways to bring some happy into your home. But what are the happiest hues out there? We partnered with the color experts at BEHR Paint to sift through the swatches and find the happiest paint colors around. Can you guess the happiest hues?

1) Yellow: Amber Brew

Yellow is, predictably, our #1 happy color. We love how this home used Amber Brew to bring some sunshine into their space above the beautiful chair rail molding of their entryway. This golden hue is a sophisticated take on yellow.

2) Pink: Rialto

It’s hard not to be happy with a bold shade of pink in the room. A rich pink like BEHR MARQUEE® Interior’s Rialto can make a dramatic statement while still creating a welcoming and soothing ambiance. Our trendspotters have been noticing more and more that people are using pinks in gender-neutral spaces. Once you see it looking lush and lovely like it does in the photo above, you can see why.

3) Orange: Balcony Sunset

This warm orange brings us to a happy place. A vibrant orange like
Balcony Sunset is both cozy and energizing. It’s a trip around the world to an Amalfi sunset or a Delhi spice market, and it’s a crackling fireplace near a comfy sofa. Bonus: warm colors like this one cast a flattering glow onto the skin. Your walls look good, and so do you.

4) Blue: Adonis

This bold shade of turquoise brings pure joy to any space. Bright blues like Adonis are perfect for putting an eclectic spin on a traditional space. Blue, after all, is a classic decorating color, but this blue is far from staid.

5) Green: Early Spring

With this
Early Spring bathroom, we’re sure
Dan & Alan get every day off to a happy start. Don’t you want every room in your home to evoke sunlight filtering through budding trees on a warm spring day? That was a rhetorical question.

How’s that for some happy inspiration? Best of all, BEHR MARQUEE Interior Paint & Primer allows you to happify your space in just one coat using any of the 372 colors in the BEHR MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color Collection. Translation? Happy can also be easy.
