paint colors for all rooms

lniaAugust 27, 2012


We are building and therefore will need to paint. The idea of selecting paint color is overwhelming and at the end of the day, I would be more than content on warm color paints throughout. . Is there a good pallet I can select that will flow from one room to the other? I need to make this as easy as possible and wish i could just take the colors of a model home and plop them into mine. Decorating will come later...

Any advice would be appreciated.

For me, fabrics are the thing, so when we were building, I selected fabrics for window treatments in the rooms and then pulled the paint colors from there. It would be helpful if you had some direction to go in. To me, paint colors are integral to decor so I knew I couldn't just pick a couple of colors and go with it.

But other people are different so they may use another approach that works for them.

Try finding an inspiration piece for each of the main rooms....maybe a counter or tile in the kitchen, a piece of art or a picture of a room you like for the living room, a bedspread for the bedroom and pull your colors from there.
