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.
It’s best that you keep your walls subtle. It’s tasteful, understated & classical. These can be creams, pale yellows & greens, pale melon, or other pastels. Be sure you go for an off-white or cream & definitely avoid extreme stark bleached white (unless you want the antiseptic feel of medical rooms or a hospital).
Go to the color swatch display area of your paint store or hardware store & look through colors & color ranges, & note what you gravitate towards & that pleases you the most. You may have already been collecting pictures of the things you love for some time – what patterns have emerged for you? What story about you are your pictures & preferences showing & telling you?
