Ok, I congratulate you for finally making the decision to add some color to your home! Good for you! I know that if you’ve lived with white walls for a long time, you’re not just surprised, but I promise you, you’ll love that transformation. But, STOP, I have one word of warning, and this is very serious, do I have your attention? You will find that after painting one room, you will want to paint another room, and another one, and another …. You get the idea. This house can be repaired and done on its own like a virus … keep walking and walking, a bit like the big pink rabbit. You’ll start having all kinds of great ideas, heck, you might even be a HGTV addict like me! By the way, it’s a great place for ideas, but I usually run out of houses before running out of ideas !!
Ok, the first thing you want to do before you go running to the house or paint shop, is look around, I mean look nice “your stuff”. That means all your existing furniture, carpets or floors, accessories, and art in the room. Does everything stay If not, what happened? For the purpose of this discussion, let’s say everything remains. Now look at it all again. Do you see some similar colors? Some colors from the same family? I think you may. You see, each of us tends to be interested in a certain color palette, or a family of colors. Some of us rely on earth tones, others go to primary colors and more. We may all be individuals, but we tend to like certain color groups.

Hgtv Living Room Paint Colors
What color group do you see in your room? And, when you look around, do you see one or two “hide” pieces in almost everything you have? Good! One or two colors that magically appear in everything, become your family of color or personal grouping. My advice is to start looking at the paint color chips that are in that family. Look at both lighter and darker colors as well. Lighter or darker depending on how high your ceiling is and how much light goes into the room. General general rules, the higher the ceiling and the more available light, the darker the shade you can paint.
What you want to think about is a set of stage, if you want. The color you are looking for will be the background or scenery to your furniture, (the actors). You do not want the wall color beating the “actor” or no one can concentrate on the ongoing conversation in that room! This will give you a good starting point in your quest for the perfect color. Remember to take your time, this is not a race to see how quickly you can choose colors. You might even want to play with several different color families, who knows you might even have fun !! I know you will have a new look at the colors in your home and even around you every day.
