Let these simple inspirations guide your interior painting ideas.

Let’s start simple. The dish set that you adore, that’s right. The one that vacations on your dining room table year round. The one that no one uses but everybody appreciates. Let’s take some colors from there. Take color from your favorite piece of artwork. Maybe a throw pillow that matches your coffee colored couch. Let’s try that one out. Your throw pillows are blue, trimmed in white, and fringed in brown. When selecting colors for rooms like a living room, take from this.  You now have the blue color family, white color family, and brown color family. You do not have to consecutively paint your walls blue, your baseboards white, and your doors brown. That may be a great painting idea but it is not the only painting choice. How about the reverse? Try taking the more prominent colors in your beloved piece and inverting that idea.

Walls aren’t your only possibility. What if you could use your ceilings to fashion the look you want? Lighter colors are always best on the ceiling. Using a murky brown on your ceiling might not be the best thought. Maybe something in that family would work. Find a “Beach Sand” color from the brown family. This works perfectly for a great painting effect. So if light colors are great on the ceilings, and higher sheen reflect and bring in light, why not a higher sheen on the ceiling? That’s a great painting idea! Not everyone feels poised in making these decisions. Putting an eggshell gloss or high gloss in every room won’t help your specific project stand out. Use greater sheen for a more classy look and high end appearance. Bringing this into your idea portfolio can truly open the door for other inspirations.
