You asked, you searched, you got it— zen paint colors. Color Zen? I mean, you already know I love the look and feel. When people come to our house they comment on the peacefulness, like a spa, or so they say (granted, this is following a clean job in which a semi stops by to remove 4 years worth of toys, etc…). It looks good for a minute anyway?
And the spa state of mind is where I always want to live. Clean lines, sun-kissed, soothing, decluttered, smells good, feels healthy. I believe I am not alone in this?
So how do we create a zenful space? This is definitely open for interpretation since we are developing an overall feeling versus following a set of design rules. And the term is vague. But here are some inspiring examples that feel just about right…
Feels good, ahhhh. And the paint colors? I decided, instead of coordinating photos with color #’s, or overanalyzing, I’m headed to a quiet corner with a pile of paint swatches to thoroughly enjoy choosing an array of beautiful shades out of the clear blue, that simply feel zen. What fun?
