You can paint a wall in two, three or four colors. Think of the style of your room future, interior size, and layout. Then choose your favorite modern colors and an original, provocative or classy wall design. There are three ways to combine wall paint colors:

1. Neutral color with soft hue.

Neutral colors, black, white and gray color tones work well with all pastels, from cold blue and mint to warm peach and golden colors.
