Whenever my friends or family ask me for wall painting ideas for their personal homes, I always direct them to this particular photo in my portfolio. I never like to recommend bold or vibrant room paint ideas that do not appeal to a wide audience because I do not want to box any of them into one particular design just because it is "cool" or "trendy" at the time. My favorite looks are timeless ones like this that provide elegance and serenity no matter if you enjoy modern styles or a more traditional palette. The cool toned tans blend so well with the creams and ivories of the bed linens and carpet, yet provides a nice contrast against the white trim. Keep in mind that you do not need to limit this palette to bedroom paint colors, but could just as easily translate this to a kitchen, bathroom, or main living area.
I have been looking for wall painting ideas for our new home to cover up the unfortunate color palette that the previous owners chose. We knew when we bought the house that we would have to redo a lot of things, but we were okay with it because we got it for a great price. Both my husband and I know how to paint a room so we will save money by doing it ourselves. The dilemma now is what colors we should choose for the overall scheme. I really like the the greenish tan shade that they used in these photos because it contrasts very nicely against the bronze metal accents and dark wood floor. I tend to gravitate towards interior paint ideas that fall into a more neutral category like this because I like artwork and textiles to provide the bolder design statements.
I know this is not what you would expect in a forum about wall painting ideas, but ever since I was a young boy I always fantasized about building a gigantic fort and, even into my middle and high school years, I was constantly exploring the woods behind our home attempting to build one thing or another. On my hunt for bedroom paint color ideas, I found this awesome design and it immediately spoke to me because of its very fort-like vibe. Something about the combination of the contrasting paint on the walls, awesome wood accent feature on the ceiling, and the earthy tones of everything reminds me so much of the treehouse I used to build. I would love to recreate both the wall painting designs as well as the overall decor scheme that they used, in order to build myself an adult "fort" in my master.
Lately I have been loving wall painting ideas that feature bold blue shades like this beautiful contemporary dining room. We are in the midst of selecting wall paint colors for our own dining room, but I had been struggling to settle on a shade that would be vibrant enough to contrast against all of the bright white panelling and architectural details that our home has, but yet is neutral enough that it doesn't overwhelm the space. While you're eating you want to focus on the food, company and conversation not the bright red walls (for example). I have heard that the best dining room colors are neutral shades that allow you to decorate for various holidays and dinner parties, but I disagree. I much prefer a shade like this that will set the tone for the space regardless of the occasion.
I love the wall painting ideas in this home because they are a bit outside of the box and do not limit the color palette to a single shade in each room. The living room paint colors standout to me particularly because the contrast of the charcoal panels against the soft grey walls and warm white trim. Ordinarily I would only think to choose one color for the walls, one for the trim, and maybe even a separate shade (other than white) for the ceiling. I don't know why I had never thought to play around with a wider variety of shades for the wall painting ideas for home that I use, but now that I have seen how great it looks (especially in a modern style decor scheme) I am definitely going to experiment more.
I am loving tan wall painting ideas lately because it is a nice balance between a neutral palette and a bold color that does provide some interest to a space. My wife and I have been looking around at home painting ideas because we don't love our current decor palette (we have not really updated it in about 10 years). We are thinking that it is finally time to upgrade our interiors and we both really like this particular design. Something about the mixture of cool and warm tones used in the tiling and paint color choices really speaks to me. The unlikely combination has a lot of depth and gives more vibrancy than I would have thought given the neutral shades. We want to adopt a similar color scheme and staircase design in our front entryway and look forward to sharing the finished product.
