Choosing a color palette for your living space can be super stressful. Since colors can definitely affect your mood, different personalities are likely to embrace different color palettes, and with so many options, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. But if you're an introvert, there are a few colors in particular that suit you best. "Introverts tend to gravitate toward softer colors and neutrals, as they create a relaxing meditative effect," Meghan Stewart, a Paintzen Certified Color Consultant, explained to POPSUGAR. "When used within the home, these paint colors will provide a calming atmosphere perfect for introverts who enjoy the comfort of a laid-back and soothing space that does not overstimulate the mind."

So, what does that mean in practical terms? Stick with cool tones and softer colors. "Shades of blue are often favorites among introverts because of the visual similarity to lakes, oceans, and the serenity of nature, which inflicts a feeling of tranquility for people of this personality type," she said. "These shades allow them to express themselves calmly and comfortably. For introverted people, I would recommend a subtle, cooler color palette. Introverts can become easily irritated and stressed in a space with highly saturated or bold colors."

If you're an introvert looking for the perfect colors to set the tone for your space, look no further! We've got six gorgeous ones that will suit your personality perfectly, as recommended by an expert.
