If you would rather start with smaller changes and minor steps, make a trial on a single wall or on a piece of furniture. The slightly bluish green X447 Sea Smoke goes well on furniture, while the more intense turquoise toned S440 Silk Road is a real eyecatcher whether applied on walls or skirting boards. Trust your intuition, choose the color or colors that are most expressive of the mood you wish to create and give your home a fresh vibe!
