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!

For dramatic impact, you can experiment with one wall as a ‘feature wall’ & make a theatrical, spectacular statement! This way you can also see whether you like & feel comfortable with incorporating a bit of dramatic ‘look at me’ impact into a room, & how you feel about the intensity of the color. Its better to start with a lighter version of the color – you can always darken the intensity. That’s easier than the other way around.

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.

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.
