Off the Wall Paint Colors You Might Just Love

Paint colors which are a little bit wild and crazy shouldn’t intimidate you just because they’re a little different than what you might expect to see. In fact, they can be downright exhilarating, when you look at them with an unbiased and appreciative eye. Below, we’ve identified some colors you wouldn’t ordinarily see gracing the homes of your neighbors, but which can add tons of life and appeal to a room. If you’re ready for a change to the same old neutral colors which dominate most households, these are some exciting possibilities you just might want to consider.


No doubt about it – this is a bright and beautiful color. Worried about how it might clash with your existing decor? Include some accessories in the room which serve to bridge the gap between neutral and this brilliant green. In a living room for example, you might add some cushions with significant green in their patterns, or you could add curtains with a splash of green. Instead of clashing, you now have a color-coordinated room, which looks like the work of a professional interior decorator.


While it might be an unusual choice for your living room or bedroom, this potent shade of blue will add depth and excitement to any room you select for it. That feeling of extra depth imparts a subtle sense of safety to occupants, and protection against the uncertainties of the outside world. It might also make you want to spend a little more time in your own personal safe haven.


This is a great possibility for a kitchen nook, especially if you have flooring which has at least some hints of mustard included, whether the flooring is tiled, sheet linoleum, or slate flooring. Of course, you can always add some other touches of yellow to enhance the connection, for instance with mustard-flecked cookie jars or flour and sugar containers.


A blush pink will definitely give a slightly feminine tone to the room you choose for this color, and if you want to balance that out, you can include some cream-colored accessories which will prevent it from becoming too dominant. If you really want to make a statement, you can go with a rouge pink in an area like an entrance way to your home. Since entrances are pretty much limited to being zones for pass-through, you can get as wild as you want with a deep rouge pink.


At some point in the past, your kids might have asked to have their bedrooms painted with a midnight black, just for the fun and uniqueness of it – and you probably dismissed the idea as being outlandish. But is it really so strange? A small room like a bathroom might be the perfect room to be painted in black, so as to add warmth, coziness, and the impression of greater space. On top of all that, everything you put in the bathroom will coordinate well with the dark and welcoming hue.
