Editor’s note: Painting is the first project many of us tackle in a new home – sometimes before we even unpack the first box. And if we can’t paint, or prefer not to, we express ourselves with color through the textiles, furniture, and accessories that fill our homes. Introducing our favorite colors to our home decor helps us make an unfamiliar place begin to feel like it’s truly ours, and a new color scheme can refresh a home we’ve lived in all our lives. Each day this week we’ll share expert tips,¬†designers’ advice, and inspirational images to help you make the most of color in your home.

It’s no secret that wall color can dramatically change the look and feel of a room. And the same color can have very different effects in different rooms. Dramatic dark walls can make one room feel cozy and another seem claustrophobic, while soft pastels can wash out one room but warm up another.

Selecting the right shade from the seemingly endless options can be tough. Take a look at four possibilities for each space below, then choose your favorite options to see how your tastes align with the popular vote.
