Try the bold and deep jewel tones that show off your personality including sapphire blue, ruby red, amethyst purple, citrine yellow, and emerald green. It can help give you inspiration and motivation while working if used in your home office, or provide a refreshed and invigorating feel when used in other areas around the house.
  2. Nature-Inspired Hues
    What better way to change up your space than to take cues from nature? Nature-inspired hues bring the outdoors to your living spaces, and can provide a sense of calm and relaxation or excitement and motivation.
