A fresh coat of paint can give any room an instant lift, making it a great solution for converting a space from drab to fab.

Though neutrals reign as America’s most popular paint choices, the National Home Color Survey from Sherwin-Williams shows people are becoming bolder with color.

“Colorful paint is an easy and inexpensive way to stylishly transform a space,” said David Bromstad, HGTV® star and celebrity interior designer. Bromstad offers the following tips for anyone looking to add color to their home:

• Identify a colorful object as the focal point of the room. Select bold items to build your room around, such as a piece of artwork, rug or chair that really makes a statement.

• Use a color palette to guide design choices. HGTV® HOME by Sherwin-Williams takes the guesswork out of choosing colors with coordinated collections of color, paint and wallpaper designed to flow beautifully throughout your home. Mix and match the colors to help guide your wall, furniture and accessory color choices.

• Coordinate your color transitions. For high-impact transitions, combine bolder shades with their more neutral counterparts, and for a more tranquil transition, stick to softer or lighter shades that are from the same color family.
