Dip into color to paint your home

Many people think all the walls in a room need to be the same color, but adding an accent wall can make the room more interesting and bring a pop of color. Good colors to use are colors that would be overwhelming on all four walls. Gabe and Sally Lloyd’s home features a burnt orange accent wall that contrasts with the golden hue of the rest of the walls.
