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.
If you’re painting your home in stages, make sure you find colors that blend together in your overall long-term plan. Try not to use more than 2 or 3 different colors throughout your home. If you like variation, use different shades of each color, but make sure they all blend together in your overall plan!

Remember, you’re developing your own style. Don’t be afraid to mix & match as long as there’s a unifying or integrating theme. Experiment with a mix & match interplay of colors & fabrics. Mix luxurious silks, soft & lush velvets, with more earthy rough textured cottons. Or whatever other fabric & color attracts & resonates with you.
