5 Creative Ways to Add More Color During Your Interior Painting Update

Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Neutral paint colors may be in style, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of room for colorful creativity.

If your Portland home is ready for a more vibrant interior paint scheme, here are a few ideas to keep in mind.

Painting an Ombre Wall


Not only is this a stylish option, but it’s a fun, unique process too. Using several different but closely related colors, an ombre wall showcases a smooth transition from one shade to another. And, the options are endless, from subdued to wild and bold.

Rethink How You Paint Your Ceiling


Traditionally a ceiling is simply white, and never draws attention to itself.

You can step outside these bounds with stunning results. In the example above, we love that the ceiling is painted the same color as just the upper portion of the walls. This creates a sense of height, almost like the walls and ceiling are propped up to a new level on the lower wall color.

High-Gloss Walls or Ceiling


We’ll be honest: painting with high-gloss products is not for the inexperienced hand. They may be durable and beautiful, but they require a flawless surface. If the right prep and repairs are made, however, glossy paint can make a room feel bright and refreshed.

Accent Specific Spaces with a Different Paint Color

Sure, you’ve probably thought of traditional accent walls, but how about painting recesses or built-ins a unique color? It will turn an often-overlooked detail into a striking asset.

Turn the Unusual Into Something Beautiful

Many homes, especially older ones, have unique angles, slopes, and curves. Instead of hiding or minimizing these characteristics, make them stand out! Homes should have character, and sometimes thinking outside the box when it comes to paint color can make those characteristics a favorite feature.
