Introvert? Extrovert? Use this guide to choose the perfect paint color

Color personality

Adding a new coat of paint to your walls is a quick, easy way to refresh your home’s interior.

With just some painter’s tape, plastic sheeting, paintbrushes, and of course, paint, in just a single weekend you can completely transform the look and feel of your home.

But with hundreds of color options, how do you settle on the right hue?

Turns out, your personality can help narrow it down.

Whether you’re a solitude-loving introvert or party-hopping extrovert, learn how to choose a color scheme that matches your mood and ensures your home is an oasis.

Extrovert? Go bright and bold. 

 Extroverts are high-energy and seek stimulation. They often feel bored or anxious at home alone, which makes bold colors a natural choice.

Dark reds, oranges, and yellows create a feeling of exhilaration. They’ll leave your room feeling light and bright and exude the lively feeling extroverts crave.

Blues, purples, and pinks are also good choices. Just choose more highly saturated colors to get that energetic feel.

Don’t want a single-color room? Go with an accent wall. Complement a bold color on one wall with light creams or neutral tones on complementary walls to really make the color pop.

The same color schemes apply when choosing artwork, as well.

The five-panel Color Metaphor is one of the most popular pieces in our Abstract Collection. The vibrant colors create a focal point and will make your walls stand out.

The two-toned Red & Blue Brush Strokes is another bold choice that will make your room feel energized. And it's available in two sizes, so it can fit any size space.

Introvert? Calm and cool is the way to go.

Introverts are typically subdued and crave comfort and calm. Hues from the cool side of the color wheel create a soothing, tranquil environment that will help introverts relax and unwind at home.

Soft, neutral colors imbue a room with a calm, meditative feel. Think light pinks or a soft canary yellow. Blues, greens, or colors with blue-green tints are reminiscent of the ocean and create a feeling of tranquility. 

And because these colors flow well together, the calm, peaceful feel carries throughout the home.

Our Tolerance of Tomorrow is the perfect combination of introverted colors. The soft pinks, yellows, and blues create a sense of calm without being boring.

Can't get to the beach? You'll feel instantly transported with the soft blues and yellows of our three-paneled Abstract Beach.
