Whether you love to sit on the beach or collect antiques, drawing from your personal passions can help you find the perfect colors to enhance your space.

“If a hobby or activity lifts your mood, surround yourself with things that remind you of it,” says David Bromstad, HGTV star and celebrity designer. “I always look to a homeowner’s passions when helping them decorate.”


Bromstad recommends the HGTV® HOME by Sherwin-Williams color collection, offering eight paint palettes with colors that create room-to-room harmony. He offers three ways to use color to express your passions through interior design:

• Head-for-the-beach colors. If you are inspired by the sea and sand, use maritime blues and dune grass greens to create a fresh, breezy feeling that beckons barefoot comfort. Try the Coastal Cool collection.


Pick colors fresh from the garden. Let the colors of your favorite flowers, fruits and vegetables guide your color choices throughout the home. Reference the Color Pizzazz collection for more bold inspiration.

Design around your collectibles. If you are an antiques aficionado, choose colors that celebrate the retro hipness of repurposed objects. Give rooms an eclectic twist with the Urban Organic collection.
