What Paint Colors are Warm?
For those that are attracted to playful bright colors or soft pastels as well as the rich colors of autumn; warm tones are always welcoming and inviting.
Yellow – Yellow is a trendy choice when you need a light color; it has a friendly feel and the ranges of yellow are plentiful.
Orange – No matter if it is a light soft orange or a dark bold orange, orange is a very vibrant color. Capturing the rustic, yet modernly projection of romance, using a deep coral, burnt orange, or even pale or pastel oranges will do the trick.
Red – Primarily speaking, red often represents passion. When it comes to red people either love it or hate it when it is used to color interior walls, accent trims, or even the accessories. Red is a dramatic statement that can be used exceptionally well when applied correctly.

What Paint Colors Should Different Areas Be?
Keep in mind the basics listed below.
Bathroom: Bathrooms are best suited for the light colors for a few reasons. Considering the bathrooms are typically designed, small, dark colors will only make them feel smaller, so use the light colors to increase the spacious feeling. Using the lighter tones will help hide the moisture accumulating on the walls. Be sure to use a high gloss paint to further conceal the moisture. Additionally, mildew resistant can be ideal to minimize any health concerns.
Dark Rooms: If the rooms are naturally dim because it is difficult for naturally sunlight to flood the room, light colors are best if you want to lighten the space. If you do want to make the room a bit brighter yellows are ideal.
Trim and Woodwork: White is a classic choice and with a variety of shades it is fairly versatile if you want to stick with the classics and it easily fits with any modern style and any color scheme. Just bear in mind the undertones of the white in conjunction with the undertones of the room
Ceilings: Though white is a popular favorite and very traditional, there is no rule saying you must leave your ceilings white. Use your creativity and use the ceilings as an accent or a centerpiece, just keep in mind the colors of the rest of the space.
