Paint colors, interior trim, and the color of the cabinet finishes are all things you’ll have to choose when building your home! While this can seem overwhelming at first, with a bit of guidance and knowledge, anyone can create a beautiful and cohesive interior color palette for their home.

First and foremost, it’s important to consider the overall style and feel of your home. Do you want a cozy and warm atmosphere or a cool and modern one? This will play a big role in determining which colors to choose.

Paint Colors

Paint Color

When it comes to selecting paint colors, I always recommend starting with a neutral base. Neutrals like beige, grey, and white are versatile and will provide a clean canvas for your decor to shine. Once you have your neutral base, you can start to layer on accent colors that complement your style and personal taste.

When choosing accent colors, it’s important to consider the mood that you want to create in each room. For example, blues and greens can create a calming and serene environment, while yellows and oranges can energize and invigorate a space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors and experiment with different shades to find the perfect combination.

A good place to start is by selecting 2 or 3 accent paint colors. Accent colors are used in more than just paint. Think about your decorative accents as well. Throw pillows, area rugs, and even furniture pieces can be used to amplify your chosen accent colors.

A brilliant and simple white always does the trick as well, especially if you want to maintain a classic and timeless look. It also allows you to change your accent colors depending on your mood or changes in seasons. Check out this blog on Choosing the Best White Paint!

Interior Trim

Once you have your paint colors chosen, it’s time to think about trim colors. While white is a classic and timeless choice for trim, it’s not the only option. If you want to create a more dramatic effect, consider painting your trim a darker color that complements your walls. This will create a bold and striking look that is sure to impress.

Finishes and Hardware

Finishes and hardware are also important considerations when choosing a color scheme for your home. These details can make a big impact on the overall aesthetic of a room. When selecting finishes, look for ones that complement your color palette and style. For example, brushed nickel or stainless steel finishes can create a modern and sleek look, while oil-rubbed bronze or brass finishes can provide a more traditional and classic feel.

In conclusion, choosing a home interior color scheme may seem daunting at first, but with a little guidance and expertise, it can be a fun and rewarding process. Start with a neutral base and then layer on accent colors that complement your style and mood. Consider your trim colors, finishes, and hardware to create a cohesive and polished look. With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to creating a beautiful and inviting home that you can be proud of.
