Color creates the energy that will set the tone for the feelings that your home evokes from your visitors.

This is a beautiful and subtle way to add some spice into your home. The use of this mellow yellow helps amplify the soft tones of the artwork and the chandelier. According to the color you use you can also add some balance to the color pallets of your home. This small touch of color is great for the person who tends to shy away from wall color, or be nervous about it. Using it on the inset or frames of doors, gives and unexpected jolt of color without overpowering the room.
