Trust me, it is not all about what and how you perceive!
Even though most of the homebuyers end up ignoring this section – it is a must that you keep in mind various aspects of a paint color before choosing it.

How Does This Color Feel in Space?
Undoubtedly, Sherwin Williams Jubilee will add a tranquilizing vibe while making your space seem larger than it is.
Not only due to medium light reflectivity but also the cool and calm undertones that result in creating an illusion of pushing away the walls.
Yes! It plays multiple roles here.
Apart from that, I recommend warmer regions to incorporate this hue as it will balance the saturation while releasing those relaxed vibes when you feel burnt out!
You might find tons of southern states using this color on the exteriors as well – because it truly reflects away the incoming light.
How Does Light Affect the Color?
Light plays up to some levels of excitement here!
Of course, it makes your space look larger, enhanced, and spacious – but also it is responsible for creating a certain mood.
For instance, if you plan to use this paint in the south or west-facing rooms – it will appear slightly warmer and washed off (but not completely).
Whereas in the north-facing rooms, it may exhibit chill vibes due to cool incoming rays.
Either way, artificial lighting can help you!
What are the Best Coordinating Colors?
Now comes one of the best parts to talk about – color palettes and color schemes!
Since you are now planning to use this paint color in your home – I must tell you, choosing a cohesive color palette is important.
(otherwise, your space might look all messed up)
So, you could either amalgamate colors of the same family to create a monochromatic palette or choose a fun-loving contrasting color palette that creates a sense of depth and excitement in your space.
Firstly, I am going to enlist paint colors to be used for a monochromatic palette.
- SW 6247 Krypton – see my full guide here
- SW 9152 Let it Rain
- SW 6249 Storm Cloud – see my full guide here
You can definitely mix and blend all of them through paint colors, decorative accents like throws and artwork, and upholstery!
Secondly, I am going to enlist paint colors to be used for a contrasting palette.
- SW 7006 Extra White – see my guide on Extra White here
- SW 6282 Mauve Finery
- SW 6129 Restrained Gold
In the case of ceilings, trims, and moldings – I would recommend using SW Pure White or SW High Reflectance White to further understand the true hue and its undertones.
