Interior decor colors tie your home together. Pick a coordinating color scheme so your entire house flows. Color is an inexpensive way to decorate and still makes a big impact. Look for colors that create the mood and theme you want in your space. You can repaint when you want a different feeling in the room. Look for an inspiration picture when choosing a room color. This could be a magazine clipping of a designer room. You may not be able to afford an interior designer but you can use the same colors. Some decorating shows post the paint colors they use on their websites. Just make sure that your space has the same amount of light and space as your inspiration room so that your room isn't overwhelmed by a dark or bold color. Slipcover or paint your furniture to really makeover your room. Color inspiration can come from items that have nothing to do with decorating. Pay close attention when you cook or spend time in the garden. The bright colors of peppers can create a funky kitchen. A pink rose can inspire the paint for a baby's nursery. Look to the items you love such as jewelry, fabric, scrap booking stickers or even your car. You can match the color exactly at a paint store. Just be sure that you love the color, not just the feeling associated with the item. The finish will be different on your walls so paint a test swatch to ensure that the color works in your space before you paint.
Fabric is an easy way to coordinate decorating colors. Begin with fabric, artwork, or a rug if you are starting with a blank room. These items contain their own color palette. The background color can work as a cabinet color or inspire the stone choice for a fireplace. For a more subtle room use the colors in the piece that you can hardly see. These neutrals will create a soothing room so your inspiration piece is the focal point.
