What are some good ideas for paint colors for a family area?

Try to use colors that inspire calm feelings. Pastels, especially blue and yellow, are great choices. Steer away from fiery colors like red or orange as they can be hostile.

The paint should not be too dark. It should be a bright neutral color. You don't want it too look too feminine or too masculine.

Colors tend to reflect people's moods, so if one were to paint a family room, it is best to go with bright colors such as yellow, ivory or peach.

Ask everyone in the family their favorite colors! Get paint chips (they're free!) in these colors and have a meeting to discuss the colored chips. Choose something everyone likes!

You want a family area to be bright, especially if you have kids. Yellow is a good color, blends in well and provides a feeling of warmth and cosiness.

For a family area, generally stick with something mellow and earthy. A combo of browns and greens are great, with a deep red/burgundy to make it pop.
