Creating paint schemes for home decorating requires compromise and balance. The eye needs places to rest and the design of the room needs to incorporate the size of your space as well as your life style. Once you throw in your design aesthetic, personality and the function of the room there are tons of things to consider. However, you can use several of your favorite colors in a space if you know how to tie them together correctly.
If you are stuck for which wall color to choose then move onto another item in your room like choosing bedding fabrics. This will help you narrow down which color palettes that you want to use and the overall design style that you are attracted to. A word of warning is that it's not always necessary for you to use the exact color of the bedding. If you have rose bedding you could put rose on the walls but it may feel too feminine or even overwhelming. Instead opt for a rich coca brown or light gold tone so that your new bedding is the focal point of the space.
If you can't find a bed set that incorporates all of your ideals then make your own. Head out to the living room department and pick a few patterned throw pillows that have modern circles or leaves. Then go to the sheet department and pick up a set of sheets in one of the main pillow colors but buy a secondary set of pillow shams. This makes solid linens interesting and allows you to create a color palette all your own. You can turn sheets into a duvet cover and use large stripes of orange and chocolate brown to tie your entire set together and get a look that is as unique as you are.
Patterns for curtains can be the jumping off point of your design inspiration. If you think that animal prints are too cutesy for a nursery go to the regular home department and buy a chic black and white damask drapery set. You can always use frilly feathers or tassel tie backs for a touch of femininity in the nursery. You can make the basic pink and white girls nursery walls pop by pairing them with deep black furniture. This creates a chic space that both baby and parents will love to be in.
If you're sick of the same basic kitchen paint color ideas find what truly inspires you to cook. This might even be your favorite food. You can create a chic space with black walls; although you may just want to stick with one wall if you are in a small space. You can even use chalkboard paint for added functionality. Paint the cabinets a bright white and then accent with yellow lemon accessories for a contemporary space that is still appetizing.
A decorating color scheme allows you to create a specific feeling in your space. Paint and solid fabrics are cheap so make it look high end with you own interpretation.
