Many of my clients tell me that choosing paint colors for their home is the most agonizing and challenging task that they undertake when trying to do their own interior decor. I can see how this would be a bit overwhelming because there are so many shades of each color family, that it certainly can be hard to know which exact tone is right for the room. The first step to any successful design is gaining some inspiration from online photographs or even homes you have visited. I get some of my best room paint ideas from unconventional places like a historical home museum or even a restaurant. Once you have your inspiration, the key to selecting the perfect shade is to pay attention to undertones.
Lately, I have enjoyed bringing unconventional bedroom paint ideas into my designs that utilize unexpected colors and textures in order to liven up a space. This beautiful contemporary master suite we recently completed illustrates a few different painting techniques that are quickly becoming some of the hottest trends for 2019. I employed a number of different unique interior decor ideas in here to elevate the style and create a funky and eclectic design. First I chose bedroom paint colors that are a bit more bold than what you usually see. I love how the deep Wedgwood blue tones stand out against the crisp white crown molding and rich drapery.
Very rarely does one find home decor in which every element works together so seamlessly. I don’t know what is more commendable—the way that the entire living room set up perfectly renders the artistic vision of the decorator, or the genius use of a distinctly western palette with geometric designs inspired from the East. These wall decor paintings with abstract patterns add a very western touch to the living room. In contrast, we have the coffee table and the rug which transport one to the Middle East. The glue to the whole set up is the choice of wall paint colors. Ashy grey and earthy beige go with both the muteness of the couch and the brightness of the red rug.
We recently transformed one of our client’s living rooms with this modern look. When trying to think of interior paint ideas, we wanted to offset the original white ceilings with slightly more muted tones so that the existing palette didn’t overbear. This is why the living room wall colors include an earthy brown. You'll notice that the couch facing the primary wall is almost the same color, while the rest of the sofas are a slightly darker earth tone. If you look further beyond the living room, you'll find that the rest of the house features other wall colors to create diversity between rooms. As our client’s space is open plan, they wanted to create segregation while still achieving a feeling of continuity.
Home renovation has always been a true passion of mine, as you can see in this picture. My first priority after going through dozens of paint samples was enhancing this grand entrance was the color scheme. After looking through some samples, I knew lighter tones would play well next to the dark, contrasting hardwood floors. As I was trying to key in on some particular wall color ideas, yellow always seemed to stand at. Its aesthetics are particularly noticeable next to the matching lamps you see perpendicular to the mirror in the picture. What’s even more remarkable – in my opinion -- is the way I balanced every element and created an in-sync look in such an important part of my home.
Finding the right bathroom paint colors is an essential task if you are undertaking any kind of interior design makeover. The shades you choose are a huge piece of determining the overall style and "feel" of your room. Most people enjoy bright neutral tones in the bathroom (like this space) because they give the illusion of open and airy spaces even in a smaller room, and they always look crisp and clean. Even better, bathroom paint ideas that incorporate these simple light colors blend well with any decor style -- whether it be elegant and traditional or edgy and modern -- and, as such, will appeal to a wide audience of potential buyers.
