#4 Complement Feature Walls

It doesn’t take much color to punch up a space. A, nook, window bay or headboard can make a great feature wall – perfect for a strong splash of color to accent your room.SW 9109Natural LinenInterior / ExteriorSW 6717Lime RickeyInterior

#5 Utilize Hallways

The end of a hall can be the perfect spot to feature an unexpected hue that might otherwise overpower an entire room. Encourage more than a passing glance by displaying interesting artifacts on a narrow console.SW 6545Majestic PurpleInterior / ExteriorSW 9109Natural LinenInterior / Exterior

#6 Test Your Colors

To see how a color will look in a space, pick up a Color to Go® Paint Sample at your local Sherwin-Williams store, paint a section of your wall, and see how it looks in different lighting throughout the day.

#7 Note Light Sources

Color never stands alone. Whether it’s natural daylight or artificial lighting, light can dramatically change the appearance of certain colors. Viewing color samples throughout the day is always the best way to find colors you’ll love.SW 6662Summer DayInteriorSW 6035Gauzy WhiteInterior / Exterior

#8 Consider Finish

Try different sheens of the same color to help your space stand out. A high gloss finish gives this chest a unique look even when painted the same color as the flat-finished wall behind it.SW 6614Quite CoralInterior / ExteriorSW 6487CloudburstInterior / Exterior
