A fresh coat of paint can easily transform a space! This year's Real Living Space became extra special as we were able to add a splash of color to the walls of each model unit with the support of Boysen. The walls worked well with the furniture and accessories—completing each designer's vision for his or her space.

If you're currently scouting for hues that you can use at home, here are five colors that stood out during the event that you may want to consider:

Sunday’s Best (BCT14-7705S)

Who wouldn't love this charming touch in the one-bedroom unit designed by interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo? The Sunday's Best hue added a chic, sophisticated touch to the space which worked well with the French-Vintage style that the designer aimed for.

Consider using Sunday's Best for your daughter's bedroom.

Granny Orchard (BCT14-7505S)

How can you achieve an energetic vibe in a bohemian-inspired space? Interior designer John Vigilia chose Granny Orchard as the perfect backdrop for the wall art and other colorful pieces. The different pillows also added to the playful look that the designer wanted to achieve.

If you are planning to revamp your child's room, consider Granny Orchard and other shades under the Naturist personality of Boysen's 2015 color trends.

Celestial Child (BCT14-7006S)

Big pieces in a small space can work as long as you have the right palette and furniture layout. In this living area designed by Joel Salazar and Paul Baes of Lucina Home, the Celestial Child color worked well as a subdued hue to match the statement pieces.

If you love the vibe of Celestial Child, you may also use it for your bedroom to add a relaxing and soothing feel to the space.

Vinyl Night (BCTS-7901S)

Who says dark colors can’t be used for a small space? If you want to add a unique and edgy touch to your space, experiment with dark walls! Pai Edles and Misty Floro of Morfosis chose Vinyl Night as the dominant color in this studio unit designed with an art director in mind. “Most Filipinos are afraid of using the color black or neon colors. We want to make them feel that it’s okay to experiment and try something new,” shares Pai.

Loved Vinyl Night? You can also use it in your entertainment room!

Turkish Marble (BCT14-7201S)

Tired of the usual white and cream-colored walls at home? Create a calming vibe by opting for Turkish Marble. As seen in this unit designed by architect Allen Oblena and interior designer Vera Villarosa-Orila, the shade contributed to the laidback feel that they wanted to achieve. It also worked well with soft blue accents and fabric wall that they placed in the living area.

Loved Turkish Marble? Consider using this shade in your living area or family room, too!

These spaces were designed as part of this year’s Real Living Space at the Avida Towers Centera showroom in Mandaluyong. To learn more about Real Living’s signature event, visit
