How to Add Personality to Your Space! | JC Licht

Do you prefer a cheery modern vibe or a warm industrial atmosphere using Benjamin Moore paint colors? Or would you rather show off classy glamour or eclectic style as a collector and mix things up?

Regardless of your style, there are many ways to inject personality without gutting out a room. Paint from Benjamin Moore is one of them. You could also go with panels, various other wall treatments, or shutters. First, we’ll start with versatile Benjamin Moore paint to help personalize your space.


Color psychology is an important concept when it comes to shaping the mood and atmosphere of a room. The Benjamin Moore colors you choose depend on the desired mood. In a bedroom, that can mean soft, cool colors for a restful, soothing vibe, but you may opt for stronger, brighter colors if you like a dramatic style.

Bright colors create a social atmosphere in a dining room; for formality, neutral colors or deep blue-greens help. Bathroom paint colors tend to be neutral—but feel free to experiment with your own variations.

There are other aspects to think of than paint color itself. These include: 

  • Lighting: While natural light from outside accentuates true color, fluorescents cast a sharp blue tone, and incandescent lights can bring out the warm tones.

  • Color Wheel: Mix opposite colors, such as red and green, to add intensity; devising combinations like this can help devise new and interesting color palettes and improve your experience at Benjamin Moore stores.

  • Monochromatic: Stick with one color group or closely related colors; the variations can be bold or subtle, while warmer or cooler colors can be used as accents.

  • Finish: Benjamin Moore colors can be highlighted by sheens such as matte or flat, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss, or hi-gloss enamel, depending on the level of shine you want.

Wall Treatments

Creative wall covering ideas can inject personality as well. A natural texture can be added with stone-like wall paneling or even wallpaper. Plywood panels can be honed to create a rustic tone, so are options for wall coverings in this respect. Other unique wall covering ideas include gluing book pages to the surface or adding stenciled shapes to personalize a blank wall and put your imagination to good use.

You could also turn a wall into a photo collage, put up decorative wall tile, or hang squares of fabric paneling. If you don’t want to stick to one design scheme, chalkboard paintallows the use of chalk or markers whenever you want. Personalize for the moment or a holiday—the options are only limited by your imagination.

Research various window treatment ideas to see what would brighten up the room. Curtains and window treatment ideas can incorporate fabric, velvet, silk, or bold prints, but you can use different types of blinds or shutters as well.
