Gray paint has gotten a lot of flack over the years for being dowdy and depressing, but in reality, gray can be a gorgeous color to paint any room of the house—especially your kitchen. A lighter shade can brighten up your kitchen and serve as an excellent base that contrasts nicely against your appliances.
Many folks opt for yellow in their kitchen spaces, particularly if they're smaller, as they can make a tiny spot feel bigger and more vibrant. Just don't go too bright, or you'll curse yourself each morning pre-coffee. Some folks like green kitchens because it feels serene and organic. If you shop at Whole Foods a lot, that's probably right up your alley.

Unless your spouse makes you sleep on the couch after a nasty fight, odds are you're going to wake up most days in the master bedroom of your Mill Valley home. It's the room you'll spend a significant amount of time in, so it's crucial to get the color right! Yoga and pilates people will like ethereal colors like cream, lilac, or icy blue.
These shades add a dreamy quality to your bedroom. Bright red is a bold, eye-popping color that can instantly turn an old room into a mod, chic space. Similarly, black or deep navy blue can make your room more sophisticated, which is especially good for those who have office space in their bedroom.

Let's be honest, nautical-themed bathrooms are overrated, but they're a popular trend that has endured for years for a reason! Bathroom equals water equals nautical, and Mill Valley is close to the beach. So paint your walls powder-blue and add some dead starfish to the walls, and boom! You’ll bathroom that will make you say, "Ahoy, matey!"
If you'd like something more highbrow, try a tan shade to evoke a timeless and classy vibe. Lavender paint can make your bathroom feel luxurious, as if you're in a spa. Pink bathrooms are so 1950s, but they can still be cute. Go for a peach color instead, and it won't look as old-fashioned.

Mint green is a gorgeous color for a Mill Valley living room. Beachside homes will feel airy, bright, and tropical with a thick layer of mint green splashed on the walls. Most people recoil from the word beige because it's just...so...beige, but in reality, it can be a nice, neutral color to create a cozy, inviting space to entertain your guests.
If you spend copious amounts of time binge-watching Netflix, then you might want to opt for a darker shade like burnt orange or dark brown to make your living room feel more like a cinema.
