I have a small bedroom and I want to make it feel BIG. How can I go about achieving this using pastel colors (soft blues, greens, browns) or colors like that?
I think that the biggest trick you can use when painting to make a small room feel larger is to paint the ceiling the same color as the walls, especially if you're using a soft color. Sea Spray, a subdued blue with a lot of interesting undertones, is one of my favorites. White Sage is a great green to try, and Cinnamon White is a nice neutral.
You'll need an extension pole for the roller to paint the ceiling, unless your room is not very tall and you want to climb up and down a stepstool. It takes a little more effort to paint the ceiling than it does the walls, but it's still an easy thing to DIY, and the results will be worth it!
