The inside of your home or apartment says a lot about your personality and can add vibrancy and life to your living room or bedroom.

Some of the colors of the 80s and 90s are coming back into style, which has to do with today’s fashion. Furniture designers incorporate the latest fashion designs into new and upcoming furniture trends, which are reflected in a home’s color choices based on what is selling the best.

There are several reasons to consider repainting the inside of your home. If there are scratches, scuffs and stains, it is a no-brainer that a paint job is needed. Another factor that comes into play is if the paint is fading. Lastly, if there are watermarks from moisture or mildew damage, a paint job can help.

Another reason for wanting to paint is to stay up to date with the latest trends. Or if you moved into a new home or apartment, making the color scheme to your liking.

If painting is your summer project, here are some warm, wonderful colors to consider:

  • CORAL
  • BURGUNDY
  • INDIGO
  • DARK TEAL
  • PERSIMMON
  • MOONSTONE BLUE
  • BLUE HYDRANGEA
  • LEMON CHIFFON
  • PERIWINKLE

While old, drab walls can kill the welcoming atmosphere of your home – they can be easily and affordably remedied with a fresh coat of paint.

Just remember, if you live in an apartment, make sure the wall is painted back to the original color and that you get permission from your landlord to add a new coat of paint onto the walls.
