Choose this color first
Choosing a color scheme for your entire home sounds like a monstrous task. Simplify it by starting with just one room. It helps if the room you choose is somewhat of a focal point in your home, but it doesn’t have to be. It could be the first room people see when they enter your home, it could be the largest room in your home, or even just the room you want to paint the boldest color. Start where you feel inspired, and build out from there. Here are expert tips for picking perfect paint colors.
Find a feature piece
Now that you’ve chosen a room to begin with, consider the colors of items that already fill the space. Is there a gorgeous painting on the wall? A stunning carpet? A colorful tile backsplash or a patchwork quilt? Find one color that you love and make it your base color. Note: That doesn’t mean it has to be your wall color. A base color is just a color that you definitely want to include. Here are room design tips interior decorators won’t tell you for free.
