Do you need a change?

Maybe you’re a creative professional in need of inspiration. Maybe 2017 is halfway over, and you still haven’t made good on that New Year’s Resolution to start exercising yet. Or maybe it’s more general than that – just feeling dull, bored, or drained.

And nothing is more effective in changing your outlook than changing the paint on your walls.

Color subtly influences our mood. Even if you aren’t paying attention to it, the effects can be quite noticeable.

For example, if you want to feel calm in a space, we suggest painting your walls a cool, soft color like Swiss Blue. This color calls to mind a calm ocean, or a clear sky, and will make you feel at peace. It’s the perfect color for a bedroom or space where you need to feel relaxed.

If that doesn’t work for you, a more feminine shade like Elephant Pink may be in order. This comforting color exudes calm, just like the blue shade above, but it has more energy, warmth, and gives a sense of feeling grounded. This would be the perfect color for a yoga room, or somewhere else that could use a dose of tranquility.

If you’re looking for something a bit more vigor, consider a more creative color like Orange Appeal. This color is a perfect addition to a home office that lacks inspiration and energy. If you need a space for creativity and inspiration, this color can help you achieve just that.

Need to get even more aggressive? Try a deep shade like Dragons Blood. This dark color is vibrant without being overwhelming, making it perfect for a room that requires passion and high energy. This color works well for home gyms or places where you need to speed up and find motivation.

These are just a few of the colors that can completely change your home. And they’re all offered by Benjamin Moore. Known for their dedication and innovation, we’re proud to be one of the authorized retailers that carry their next-level line of paints and stains.
