Choose complementary colors
Can’t decide on just one color? Use the unique architectural features of a room to paint different colors that complement each other. For example: Ii you have a room that have three full walls and an archway where the fourth should be, paint the archway a darker color to highlight it. Or maybe paint one of your four walls a darker color to accent it.

Choose a color that goes with the purpose for your room. If you have a workout room, paint it a warm color to get the blood pumping. For a meditation or yoga room, try light green or blue to evoke calmness.
