When applied to walls, Upward transforms a space into a haven of tranquility. Bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms can benefit from this calming hue, promoting a sense of well-being and relaxation. Upward pairs well with neutral tones, creating a harmonious balance that exudes sophistication.

Cabinetry Elegance

Upward is not limited to walls; it also adds a touch of elegance when applied to cabinetry. Kitchen or bathroom cabinets painted in Upward create a refreshing and timeless look. The light and airy feel of the color opens up the space, making it feel larger and more inviting.

Influence on Mood
The psychological impact of Upward goes beyond the surface. Its deep connection with serenity and clarity has the ability to encourage occupants to take a step back, unwind, and adopt a mindful mindset. By doing so, it effectively transforms the home into a sanctuary – a place where the mind can find solace and peace amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Harmonious Pairing
