Painting is one of the best options to refresh a home. With a few hundred dollars, you can change the whole feel of a room. This year we have seen paint colors turn towards a more dramatic feeling. Many are dark with a moody undertone. However pairing them with a brighter option could be the perfect option for your home.
According to the Spruce.com, Shadow by Benjamin Moore is the color of the year.
