Morning Mist or Tangerine Dream? When choosing paint colors, one must decide between serene scenes or punchy tones. Many interior designers prefer to go with neutral tones on the walls and leave the highlighting task up to the accessories in the room. Others like to splash vibrant hues on the walls of every room and leave the details to be, well, just details. In my latest house painting projects, it has become obvious that I have a hankering for the more boastful and shocking pantones. It just seems to add so much personality to a space that might otherwise be blasé.
