When opting for yellow interior walls, I must mention how you need to look for a neutral. You never want to go to dark or too bright of a yellow. A subtle shade will go a long way. It is all about optical illusion, and picking a lighter shade will always make a space feel open opposed to a dark tone that will absorb light and make it seem minute. .

Pastels

Pastels will always make a room appear larger due to its inviting and light characteristics. A soft tone of blue, green, or pink will allow the maximum effect.

It is all bout picking the right colors and combining them together to adequately form an airy, open, and elegant living space. What colors have helped you make your rooms appear bigger?
