#2: Paint a room in a non-white neutral.Bored with your boring white walls, but not into the idea of doing a drastic paint job? You'd be surprised how the tone of a room can change by lifting the shade just slightly. Look for the faintest of pinks, greens, or yellows, or try echoing a color scheme you already have in your home. The greatest thing about these subtle shades? They tend to change in different lights, appearing nearly white in daylight, and taking more color at darker times.
