10 Zen Colors to Have for Your Home

Posted on July 20, 2016

With the month of July already starting, things are going to get crazy with all the activities that will take place. Busy events like festivals, school enrollment, and national holidays are expected to happen. So with the crazy ruckus just around the corner, you need to have a good complement to go with it. One of the best complements with having a busy schedule is a cool and calming home. Having serene paint colors around the house can help replenish the stressed spirit. You’ll definitely conquer July with a cool and calm space.

Here are 10 calm paint colors for a Zen-type home:

  1. Buff
    Buff is a subtle paint color that’s helpful if you want your house to have a very simple scene. Try mixing it up with one strong color like Brown or Charmoisse to add contrast to your house.


  1. Maize
    Maize is the color to go for if you want to have a yellow take inside your household. The good thing about having this color is that it’s not very loud. It’s perfect if you just want a very peaceful and light tone.


  1. Pistachio
    Pistachio is a very organic color that brings calmness to the concept of the color green. You can add extra tones to it like Lemongrass or Aqua green to have more variety in your home.


  1. Dawnbreak
    As the color name implies, Dawnbreak is a color that welcomes tomorrow with a very cool vibe. Dawnbreak can also be equated to the different colors of the sky making it very cool and welcoming to your household atmosphere.


  1. Charisma
    Charisma is a regal color that’s very subtle. If you want to have a royal tone without too much of the attention or the flash, Charisma is the paint color for you. You can mix it up with other minimal colors like Buff to create your ideal space.


  1. Milky Opal
