How To Embrace Bold Paint Colors, According To Joanna Gaines
It may be surprising to learn that neutral-color enthusiast Joana Gaines has some sage advice when it comes to introducing new and bolder colors into interior spaces.
Gaines said, “If it seems a little scary, start small.” Minor doses of color create depth and dimension, and if it's a color you love, it makes the home personal and unique.
Try your favorite bold or dramatic color in a small space like a hallway, powder room, or entryway. Introduce painted pieces like tables, dressers, and cabinets in richer colors.
Use shades of the new nature-inspired neutrals for a smooth transition, since these colors — especially shades like soft green and pale blue — have the calming allure of neutrals.
Darker, vivid colors tone each other down when in proximity to each other. Jewel tones such as deep purple, magenta, and plum are a stunning combination that add drama.
