In any room, no matter the size, color is one of the most important elements to consider. While we all have favorite colors, there is also a real science behind color selection. Blues tend to give off a sense of calm, while orange and yellow can be energizing. Another important factor is tone, think pastels compared to vibrant hues. Depending on the mood you are going for, color makes a big difference. When designing a cozy study escape, a rich deep or dusty color will enhance the warmth of the inviting space. If you are seeking to make a small room feel larger, stick to lighter color that make the room feel airy. A trick of the trade is to apply your color to the walls, but paint the ceiling a bright white that will make the ceiling feel higher and the overall space seem larger.
