Create a mood with paint
Change the overall look and feel of a room with a simple, budget-friendly paint job. Choose cooler hues, such as sea-foam green and sky blue, to convey a sense of calm and serenity, or rich, warm tones to achieve a cozy, comfortable feel. For an expansive, airy effect, paint the ceiling a few shades lighter than the walls. You can also accent one wall with a bold shade or sand texture.
