Create inspired dream spaces

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: DecorDesign

Ready to transform your home this year? The key to creating your dream interior space could be as simple as updating with color.

Seven in 10 homeowners plan a house-related project in the next six months, according to the Sherwin-Williams National Home Design and Color Survey. Of those homeowners planning house projects, painting tops the list with 42 percent wanting to liven up their space with color, followed by landscaping (39 percent) and redecorating (30 percent).

Adding color with paint makes sense to internationally celebrated interior designer Jeff Andrews, who has decorated the homes of celebrities from Ryan Seacrest, to Michael C. Hall to the Kardashian family.

“Paint can incorporate distinctive touches that will liven any living space. Everyone has the potential to live in his or her dream space, and a touch of color can easily make it a reality,” Andrews said.

Andrews offered the following tips on how to create the ultimate dream space:

Upgrade living areas with creative color choices

Changing the color of your walls can transform a room from ordinary to extraordinary. For stunning color that will last for years to come, Sherwin-Williams Emerald Interior paint offers paint and primer in one, with advanced stain-blocking technology, ensuring a statement color that’s easy to maintain and perfect for adding that pop of pizazz to any room in your home.

Highlight accent pieces with vivid color to bring a room alive

Incorporating a distinctive and vibrant color adds a layer of visual elegance and style to any room. Painting an accent wall, trim, crown moldings or a ceiling in a color that complements the walls can instantly give a room a classic, chic and customized look.

Channel your inner designer

From stripes to geometric designs, infuse vibrant energy to a room with an on-trend painted pattern.

Create curb appeal with a bold use of color

Make over the exterior of your home with a bold color. Consider coordinating your palettes from the inside out by painting your front door a few shades darker than the entryway.

Transform the ordinary

A fresh coat of paint can elevate a simple piece of furniture and provide a distinctive look. According to the survey, nearly two-in-three homeowners (64 percent) want to add more color into their home. Pick a favorite desk or nightstand and use color to create a signature focal point in a room. For more tips and color inspiration, visit sherwin-williams.com/color.
