Here are some guideline pointers – decide which you feel most comfortable following. If you’re just starting out, you may want to work with just one paint color on the walls throughout your home. You can always build on that later. Better to take it gradually, than to feel that you’ve overstepped the mark & don’t like it, can’t live with it, & have to redo it.
Think of textures you love – grainy, coarse, robust, or smooth & velvety. Take note of these things about your preferences. Note what clothes you wear – they can be inspiration to your home decorating -your favorite clothes or accessories can be anchors or features for your home decorating.

Or, if you feel drawn to start with another room, perhaps your sun room or child’s room, then follow your instincts & preference. It’s important that you don’t feel overwhelmed. Start small if you feel more comfortable. Feeling overwhelmed will most likely block you & you won’t move forward.
