Choosing the right color scheme
To begin with, many thanks go to Laura Owens of Renewed Spaces for providing this post. This kind of expertise is out of my universe. However, it is valuable for someone who has just purchased a home and is looking for decorating ideas.
Having a hard time picking a color scheme? Look around. Anything can act as a color and design inspiration for your room. A favorite paining (to the right), photo, note card, piece of pottery, a textile or piece of clothing can provide the color pallet for your room. Anything that captures your attention and that you connect with on some visceral level can be your inspiration.
