Lately I've been drawn to the idea of half-painted walls, with the colorful half on the bottom. A block of color at the base of a wall brings coziness to a large space or a room with high ceilings by bringing the eye down. It's a way to incorporate rich color without making a massive commitment and when the top half is kept white, almost any color base can be successful. And when a change is wanted, it's a lot less work to repaint.
