A lot of people come to me asking for room paint ideas because (understandably) they get overwhelmed standing at the paint counter in front of the hundreds of swatches of color options. Wall painting ideas for home do not need to be that challenging -- I always suggest bringing in a favorite piece such as artwork, a throw pillow, or textiles and finding the right shades within those objects. This will basically ensure that something in the space will match and that you will achieve the correct undertone. In the gray painted rooms of this home, we used the plush area rug as a stepping stone for the shades we chose. I actually brought a sample to the shop and found swatches that perfectly matched the mid-tone grey in the fibers.
Picking out room paint ideas has always intimidated me because I think that I just don't have an eye for color. My kids say that I send tp pick the wrong undertones for the wall painting design I am trying to achieve, and that I tend to pick shades that are too "warm" for the rest of my decor. Ever since I recognized this issue, I have begun doing a lot of research online for popular established shades in spaces that either look like my home or the look that I want to achieve, then getting swatches of those to try out. I actually find that it is very helpful to look at room painting ideas online because it helps me to visualize what the completed space will look like without having to guess. I found this gorgeous taupe shade (Benjamin Moore Gray Owl) in a home decor magazine and think that it looks perfect against the rest of our muted grey decor.
This designer did such an amazing job choosing room paint ideas that perfectly accent all of the amazing architectural details of this space. Between the gorgeous wood beam ceiling, cozy stone fireplace, and stunning hardwood floors, there are a lot of bedroom colors going on in this one space. Not to mention, they added a bold (yet welcoming) bed frame and linens as well as a vibrant sitting area. Somebody less skilled would not have know which wall painting ideas to pair with this very busy design, but I think that the warm-toned tan shade that they used was the perfect choice. It is intense enough to give some color to the space yet still neutral enough to fade into the background against all of the other features in the room.
Between the wall paper accent walls and room paint ideas this designer used, this cool guest bedroom design has it all. I think that the dusty grey wall paint colors were the perfect accent to this cool wood siding look paper that they used to create the illusion of a real wood accent wall. It blends so well with the mountainside decor they used in the rest of the house and is the perfect choice to highlight the gorgeous views outside of the picture windows. I love it when people aren't afraid to have fun with bedroom paint ideas, and opt for something bold and exciting. Home decor can always be changed at the drop of a hat, so why not experiment with new looks and techniques until you figure out what you like the most.
I have been needing room paint ideas for pretty much every area of our new house because the previous owners (in my opinion) did not have very good taste in color palettes. Currently we have a lot of boring neutral shades, but I prefer vibrant rich hues like the living room paint ideas in this house. I like how the deep sage green shade makes the crisp white architectural detailing of the trim, fireplace, and built in bookcases really standout. If you were to have a similar white or beige shade, you would not notice the pretty intricate detailing of the molding like you do with a contrasting color like this. I would like to imitate the interior paint colors that they used in this space, not only in our living area, but our kitchen and dining room as well.
We really need some room paint ideas for our entryway and main living areas of our home. We recently purchased this house and, although we love the architectural details, I think that the interior paint ideas that they chose do a disservice to the entire design. The warm yellow shade does coordinate with the undertones of the wood floor and banister but I don't think that it maximizes the style we could have. I would much prefer to replace it with a nice white or blue grey shade that would contrast a bit more against these structural details. In my opinion, the best color for living room walls is one that provides a nice base but does not distract or take away from the other decorative elements in the space.
