Nature is abuzz with energy in April as flowers and trees awaken from their winter sleep. Light sprinkles of rain, interspersed with sunshine, provide the perfect amount of nourishment to wake the world from its winter slumber. The sky takes on gentle hues of blue, dotted with puffy white clouds. Behr color Light Drizzle N480-1 calls to mind the soft blue sky present on an imminently sunny spring day, which is why we’ve chosen it as the Color of the Month.

Light Drizzle is an inviting, easy-on-the-eyes color that’s perfect for living room walls. White wall and window trim look crisp and clean against the blue backdrop. Furnish the room with earthy neutrals, such as a light beige sofa, topped with a few white and light blue patterned throw pillows to enhance the earth-and-sky vibe. Wood floors and shelves look great against a Light Drizzle backdrop, as does a sisal rug and other natural-fiber room accents. A few French vanilla pillar candles look great in this space, especially teamed up with a table lamp in a similar hue. Add a vase of fresh cut lilacs in varying shades of lavender and purple for an extra touch of outdoor beauty.

A kitchen adorned with Light Drizzle walls feels like waking up to the warmth of a sunny spring or summer day. It’s the perfect wall color for a breakfast nook outfitted with white built-in seats and a timeless white tulip table. White window and wall trim further enhance the beauty of the cheery blue walls. Light Drizzle is also a great shade for an eclectic kitchen, or in a home with an open floor plan where one space seamlessly morphs into another. This soft shade works well even on furniture, such as a buffet or bureau cabinet used to store spare dishes and kitchenware. A few throw pillows in patterned blues or yellow atop the nook bench rounds out the sunny day sensation.

Light Drizzle walls add some cheer to the laundry room, too. Keep the vibe light and airy with white wall trim, a white door and even white shelves to store those laundry-day necessities. A light gray or white floor keeps the color scheme going, making chore time feel less dreary and a lot cheerier.

Round out the space with a few contrasting elements, such as an espresso or black vanity and a deep jeweled blue bench or seat.
