If you’re scared of settling on a new paint color, the thought of painting a room (let alone an entire home) a vivid color is downright terrifying. If you’re flirting with the idea of adding colorful flourishes to your home, why not try dipping a toe into a new hue with small accents? Read on to discover simple ways to experiment with 2018’s trendiest shade of purple, and consider your color commitment issues sorted!
Beautify Your Built-Ins
Ease into a new color palette by refinishing your shelving with a trendy shade like purple. In the span of a lazy Saturday afternoon, you can transform your basic built-ins into bold and beautiful conversation pieces that are finally fit to hold your treasures. Simply add a coat of purple paint to the interior of each built-in to create visual contrast, and wait for the compliments to roll in from guests!
Paint a Statement Wall
Painting the entirety of your interior in a bright hue is a bold design move — and one that might give a cautious decorator pause. Instead of committing to an entire room in one hue, try creating a striking accent wall in your dining room or bedroom. Inspired Lilac SW 6820 by Sherwin-Williams is both a soothing and inspiring hue, wherever you choose to use it. If you’re having trouble envisioning how the paint hue will look on your wall, try Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® Visualizer to virtually paint your accent wall in the shade of your choice before you commit to a color.
Give Your Outdoor Furniture a Colorful Makeover
If you’re seeking an Instagram-worthy way to add pep to home during the Summer months, why not paint your outdoor furniture in rich, regal purple? The project is a snap to complete and will lend visual interest to your al fresco space.
Enliven Your Backsplash
Dip a toe into vibrant colors by giving your backsplash a chromatic lift with a fresh coat of high-gloss paint. A white backsplash that hasn’t been accented with tile or trim can be a great canvas for the bright shade you’ve been dying to try out.
