Choosing the right color for your interior is quite a challenge. There are so many colors you like, but eventually you only need a couple off colors for your interior painting idea.
Before you finalized and choose the color scheme, you have to complete the whole interior painting idea first. Wallpaper, fabrics and accessories has to be finalized before the color scheme.
Take all the fabric, carpet, tile, wall paper sample etc when you go shopping for easy reference.
Look all the colors carefully, and always revert back to the big picture of your interior painting idea. Choose the colors if those colors are still in the direction you’re headed.
Consider which paint finish might be best for your interior painting idea. Matte or flat finishes hide wall imperfections, but glossier finishes will reflect more light.
There are warm color (orange, red, pink, etc) and cool color (blues, greens, violet, etc). This type of color can help you to select the right tone for your interior painting idea
It is always good to make a note behind the color cards, the name of the store where you picked it up. Sometimes you find the perfect color, but you can’t remember where you got the sample.
Check the paint sample under natural light to make sure this is the right color for your interior painting idea. But the best is, take it to the room where you will use it along with the fabrics and the accessories.
Light colors are usually most pleasing for a ceiling, because ceilings are seen in shadow. If you’d like the ceiling to match the wall color, buy ceiling paint one or two shades lighter than the wall color (on its color chip). Or, dilute your wall color with white paint in a ratio of 25% color to 75% white.
You might need a few days to getting used to your new room color that came from your interior painting idea. Sometimes, new color can look out of place in an empty room. Put some furniture, fabric and finalized with your accessories. You will surprised to see your new room color harmonizes with other room elements


Sometimes, it is hard for us to create a good design for our home interior, or even worse, we even don’t know where to start. I have some simple tips that might be able to help you.
There’s so many way to get your own interior design ideas. I usually visit the furniture stores that feature whole room displays and get the inspiration from there. I went to a book store as well and bought some books to inspire my interior design ideas.
Short while after I get the interior design ideas, I started to sketch the scaled plan on millimeter paper. In the process, I love to discuss the idea with my wife get her idea too. After all, I’m not the only one who live in the house 
After we finish the plan, we start to find a color scheme for our interior design ideas. We pick a primary color first for the ceiling, wall and floor. After that, we choose the complementary colors for our furniture and then tertiary colors for our drapery and accessories. You can go to a bookstore and find color guidebooks of how to blend colors. Use these examples as shown or as inspiration for your interior design ideas.
In some room, for example your living room, it is important to plan a focal point in your interior design ideas. Focal point is the area that demands attention as soon as someone enters a room. The focal point may be something you add, like a stunning piece of artwork from which you took color inspiration or a rug in an interesting shape. It may also be a feature of the room, such as a fireplace or a wall of windows overlooking a garden, or you can highlighting your collection in one area to creates visual interest in a room and speaks of your personality and interests.
After you finish with your interior design ideas planning, it’s time for you and your loved one to practice. Don’t be afraid for mistakes. Remember, bad color choice can always be repainted, furniture is easily rearranged and windows are fine with curtains, shades or nothing at all. What matters most is that you have fun making your home welcoming and comfortable. 
