How to Choose Colors for Your Interior

➤Balance the color of wall with colors of fabrics, accessories and furniture. Always look at the bigger picture. Your room is not made up of only walls but of flooring, furniture, accessories, drapes and the other decor as well.
➤ Decide the kind of paint finish you want. You can choose from a matte or glossy finish as per your preference; some colors look better in a glossy finish than in a matte finish.
➤ Apply a sample of paint on the walls before painting the whole wall in a particular color. This gives you a rough idea of how the color will look in the overall scheme of things.
Here is a palette of colors that will explain exactly what colors home experts are popularizing this year. The focus is on connecting with nature and slowing down in this fast-paced life along with a flash of a bright, vibrant color.
Of course, the area you use it in will make all the difference when it comes to achieving the desired, perfect look. Here's a look into the colors you should be trying out this year.

From the Earth...

Getting in touch with the earthy side of nature is what defines one of the most powerful color palettes this year.
A neutral palette is always welcome by those who don't like to be overpowered by color, rather soothed by it. Neutral shades of gray or beige can easily be combined with any vibrant shade, and can be used in almost any area of the house without looking jarring. Bask in the calmness that this soothing palette has to offer.

...To the Sky...

Whether it is the earth or the sky, the aspect of nature you want to connect with completely depends on you.
Shades of blue, both soft and vibrant are currently dominating the scene in the world of interior painting; and to balance the softness of this color, experts suggest using brighter colors to offset the beauty of the overall interior space. The idea is to create a balanced contrast so that you are comforted when you enter that particular space.

...And a Splash of Color

Life without colors would be really bland and knowing where to add the right amount of bright color is what defines the beauty of a space. All the colors must balance each other. You can use bright to muted shades of orange, pink, purple, yellow etc. to beautifully decorate your walls.

Into the wild...

The soothing shades of green represents life, freshness, and harmony.
Shades of green are trending this year as the herbal aspect of nature makes everyday feel like spring. Bright to muted series of green can be used as interior paint color, but combination of two or more shades of green look especially stunning. The combination of sage green and lime green will bloom every corner of your home.

Glow in Sunshine...

Bright shades of yellow can add life to the dull corners of your house. Your room is not only about walls but also furniture, floor, etc. So, select the shades of each element accordingly. Bright shades can be used for kitchen, while muted shades add beauty to a living room or children's room.
