Color of the Month:

Word of Mouth

color of the month main

Boost your mood with the August Color of the Month, Valspar's Word of Mouth VR037D, because even a little glow of this lively, blush apricot gives a big lift to a boring room.

This spirited hue is ripe with personality, which makes it an ideal color for living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. Inspired by the healthy-living trend, there's nothing shy about this shade - it brings a glow wherever it goes.

Create a focal point in a room by painting a fun, geometric pattern on a bright, white wall. This technique is ideal for a home office for a fun and creative vibe. Pair this cheerful hue with yellows and greens to liven up any small room in your home such as a breakfast nook or kid's room. Try it on furniture with gold hardware to instantly refresh a dated armoire or desk.

The colors represented here may not match the actual paint colors. For best color representation, pick up a color chip of your selected hue from the Valspar® color display at your local Ace store.
