This is how interior designer Marie Flanigan gets color drenching down for a sophisticated, standout space |


Color drenching offers a fast track to bold, exciting design schemes, but it’s not the most approachable method for painting a room. Whether you’ve opted for a dark, moody color palette or are after something a bit more subtle, the prospect of painting an entire room in the same shade can feel like an enormous undertaking. What if you grow sick of the hue you chose? What if the final product is just too much?

Luckily, interior designer Marie Flanigan just took to Instagram to share the color-drenching hack she relies on when she ‘wants a paint color to be [her] muse.’ And the secret lies somewhere unexpected: the paint’s matte, glossy, or somewhere-in-between finish. Here’s what Marie suggests for an eye-catching yet sleek space that’s drenched in a single shade, plus why it’s a room color idea that’s hard to beat.
