Choosing the right paint color for your walls or deciding on an entire color scheme is easy when you use our tips, online tools, color charts, hundreds of inspiring photos, and latest finds on color trends. Learn the best ways to use each color -- whether it's green, yellow, blue, red, purple, pink, brown, or neutrals. Each hue has unique traits, and knowing how to best use individual colors will create a room you'll absolutely love. Plus, color can set the mood for a room and lay the foundation for a space's style and personality. Every room in your home has several opportunities to introduce color -- including paint, window treatments, linens, furniture, accessories, wall art, flooring, and more. If you're not sure where to start, take our color personality quiz and get a color palette customized to your tastes and personality.
