When it comes to paint, a tough choice can sometimes end in a beautiful, colorful compromise. If you have fallen in love with more than one shade for a particular room of your home, we suggest keeping both around. Here, we’ll walk you through rooms that get two tones (or more) just right. 

We would happily work at this desk if this were our view. These great grey tones combine to create a striking piece of statement art, right on the wall.

A little dab’ll do ya! Paint just a tiny patch on the walls above your desk. Give your space a little color. This is a quick way to update a neutral palette.

This beautiful grouping of colors is so scrumptious and soft. A relaxing haven for sure. 

Even the smallest of spaces can handle a little color update. If your walls are already white, pull out your paintbrush and just color the bottom half of your walls. This project is one that can be completed in just an afternoon. 

Draw attention to your doorway with a little color. This navy tone accentuates the opening.

This sweet pink shade catches the eyes of anyone who enters this room. A strawberry tone mixes well with the vanilla and makes us all kinds of hungry for something sweet. 

An off-center melon stripe immediately grabs our attention. The imperfect placement of art and furnishings gives the room charm and interest. 

A lovely slate blue shade makes quite the impression on this otherwise white wall.
