Color of the Month: Charismatic Sky
by Quinn Larson
April is a month of softening skies, warming weather and signs of young, new life in the form of plant shoots and flower buds. Pastel tones dot the landscape and the atmosphere. The mild blue in Behr’s Charismatic Sky M520-3 perfectly captures the calm essence of April, which is why we’ve chosen it as the Color of the Month.
Charismatic Sky, as a cool relaxing sky blue, is an ideal wall color for a bathroom, transforming a functional space into a personal oasis. Paint all the walls in this pale, blue, shade for an ethereal expansive vibe. Bring a coastal feel to your space with accessories in sand and stone tones in bath towels, area rugs and furniture. These tones work equally well together in a cottage-style space or a modern spa-influenced bathroom.
The calming influence of blue works equally well in a bedroom, too. Paint the walls with Charismatic Sky for a room that looks airy and inviting during the day, and perfectly peaceful at night. This soft blue pairs well with white window and door trim, even with a dark floor underfoot. Outfit the space with bedding in white or light neutral tones, a beige headboard and a few natural wood accents for a soothing private sanctuary. A textured area rug in earthy sand tones adds a cozy touch.
Charismatic Sky suits living rooms and seating areas as well. Paint the walls a soft blue for a relaxing space that’s ideal for reading a favorite novel or enjoying conversations over cups of tea. For a bold retro-modern look, furnish the room with patterned fabrics and accents featuring red, navy, pale blue and white. Add a bright red table, vase or chair to pack a visual punch and add a shot of warmth.
