America wants more colorful homes

When it comes to adding bold touches of color to a home, most people play it safe and go for wall art, according to a national survey.

Thirty-nine percent of homeowners chose paintings or wall hangings for a pop of color, while 23 percent painted their walls to perk things up and 15 percent picked furniture in a lively hue, according to the latest National Home Color Survey by Sherwin Williams.

Three out of four people who responded, or 74 percent, said they still would like more color, and 62 percent were planning a paint project.

The room where those surveyed want more color is the living room (29 percent), followed by the bedroom (19 percent) and the kitchen (10 percent). – Karen Sullivan
