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.
Cushions, pillows, throw rugs, floor rugs & decorative accessories – are a great way to add color, style, personality & warmth to your room, your home. The great thing is that you can experiment – buy one item & bring it home & stand back & see if you like it, or live with it for a while. You want it to be pleasing, or make a WOW statement!

Ideally, colors are best flowing through your home – tones of the same or similar or complementary shades work best. Or graduations in varying intensities of the same color palette throughout your home also work well.
Make sure that you plan your colors in overview so that they blend, flow & move with ease through your home. Your aim is to develop an overall blueprint, an impression of what you want to achieve, & to have your rooms complement each other.
