Most people tend to want to choose the paint color first and then begin looking for furniture and décor. However, it should be the other way around. You will realize it is a lot easier to choose a paint color after you already chose the furniture and décor.

Have an Idea Board

You will want to have inspiration and ideas on what you want your final product to look like. Pinterest is a great place to gather ideas and figure out what looks you do and do not like. Save the ones you do like and then narrow it down from there.

Aside from Pinterest, you can also find inspiration in nature. Look at the colors of your favorite flowers and plants. Shapes and colors often look their best in nature so take note of the beautiful spectrum to choose from on your next walk by the water. Some of the most incredible color spectrum can be found underwater so check out different tropical fish to see how different colors might work together too.

Neutrals or Colors

This choice in entirely up to you and everyone has their own styles so you will have to choose which best suits you.
