Light Gray

Light gray recreates a palpable calming mood with a cool and collected vibe. Paint the walls with a light gray color such that the shade appears to be “barely there”. Next, introduce a layer of slightly darker colors and break it up with an understated decorative artwork or patterns.


Stillwater is a type of color that triggers relaxation moods almost immediately. Painting your bedroom walls with Stillwater will make you feel like floating in a boat, looking up the sky. Stillwater is pale blue, gentle and tranquil.


Delicacy color is a cream color, mixed with a touch of red. It brings a sense of softness and warmth that’s more uplifting and soothing to the soul. It is clean, gentle and optimistic. Consider introducing delicacy paint to your bedroom walls by laying it with olive, off-white and other soft colors.


Try a muted lavender color on the walls for a calming aura in both your living and bedroom. Lavender is a chilly hue so you may want to counter that coolness with a gray-hued carpet or warm wooden furniture.  Pairing soft lavender with dark gray and black can help create a soothing feeling and grown-up atmosphere.

Soft Neutral Green

Take an inspiration from nature and obtain serenity by painting your walls with sage green, light pistachio hue or celery. Homeowners seem to find soft neutral green colors their favorite. These neutral greens make the home feel elegant and grounded and can be used in any context.  Cream pairs well with sage green increasing your calming moods ten folds.

Take the first step to become stress-free (or at least try) and visit your local paint store to repaint your home. You won’t regret it and every home now and then needs a new fresh coat of paint.
