DIY Tip: Inspiration sites like Pinterest and Instagram are great FREE apps to pull styles and color schemes from.
Step number 3: Pick your favor color
Think about how you want to feel when you walk into the space. If you want the space to feel dramatic, add a bold color from the 2022 Boldest Paint Color Bestsellers list on the left. If you're look for a relaxing feel, go with warm color like beige.
Remember color has a powerful way of adding personally to a space.
Step number 4: Choose a base
Narrow down the color families and tones you want to stick with your color scheme. Since your base color is going to take up most of the space, choosing a neutral primary color will appeal to the eye best.
Step number 5: Roll up your sleeves
After you have chosen your base color. It's time to grab your painting supplies (from your local home improvement store), roll up your sleeves, and get to work. Doing this you'll save a lot of money and feel accomplished when finished. Then, you can sit back with your beverage of choice, and enjoy the view- saying "I did that!" with a smile on your face.
