January offers a peaceful sense of release once the holiday season and the former year subside as we drift into the new year. It is a time of new beginnings and hope, and for taking some time to be still and simply relax. Behr paint color Dayflower MQ3-54 calls to mind a fresh start, bringing a peaceful elegance to any room as an accent or all-over wall color.

Dayflower works well in small tight rooms as well as  open floor plans. This light, airy color makes the room feel spacious and comfy all at once, no matter what the season. Dayflower goes well with rooms full of natural wood tones, black and metallic accents.  Upholstery in light grays or taupe also pairs well with Dayflower. Add a few throw pillows in assorted textures and shades of brown, blue, or charcoal for visual interest.

A home office or a room with a multi-purpose work area also benefits from a soothing hint of blue. A space for multiple tasks is also a good place for multiple wall colors, such as one or two Dayflower walls and the others in a soft beige. Round out the room with a white desk and storage cupboards, a chair in a blue and white chevrons pattern, and a few accent pieces in blue hues and natural wood tones.
