Getting ready for guests?
A neutral color palette will make anyone feel at home. Sue Wadden, Sherwin-Williams Director of Color Marketing, recommends a light color, such as white or pastel blue, which will make the room feel airy and large with plenty of space for his or her stay.

Liven Your Family Room
Think about your family room as the heart of your house. How do you want yours to feel? Grays, blacks and darker blues can add a nice dramatic touch, while reds, oranges, and lime greens will stimulate your space. In addition, whites and pale blues will help soften and expand the room. Try Charcoal Blue SW 2739, Delft SW 9134 and Pussywillow SW 7643.
Got dull built-in shelves in your family room? No problem. Paint the walls behind the shelves to match the existing wall color so that they disappear into the background, then decorate the shelves with colorful accessories to make them pop.
A picturesque fireplace can become a natural focal point in your family room. If your walls are pale, going bold with your mantel can add just the right amount of color – not too much, not too little – to highlight the subtlety of your other color choices, and introduce energy into the room.
Then there’s the center of every home—the kitchen. It’s often the room where families gather and is associated with love and comfort. Surprisingly, orange is one of the best colors to use in the room. It enhances feelings of warmth, abundance, and fun.
