When in doubt go with a blue and white color scheme – This classic color scheme will never go out of style. It is also a go-to because it can be made more elegant or more casual.

Do different shades of the same color – This works great if you have an open floor plan. You get the best of both worlds with the coziness from the dark shade and the openness from the lighter shade.

Pick a color palette and repeat it throughout the home – Pick shades that go well together than use them smartly. Take into consideration which rooms are next to each other, which rooms you can see from other rooms, hallway placement, and openness of the house. These factors will all have an influence on which color you should paint each room. For example, if you can see your living room from your kitchen you will want to make sure the colors flow nicely.

Pick pattern or color – If you are going with a lot of patterns in the room its best to keep the color neutral and vice versa. Otherwise there will be too much stimulation in the room, and it will be overwhelming to look at.

Use color as an accent – If you want to incorporate color into your home but don’t want to do it in large amounts, use it in the accents instead. Add pops of color in your pillows, throws, rugs, etc. If you end up not liking it, you can always switch them out.

Add quick color – If you have last minute plans and feel your home is in need of a little color go buy bright colored fresh flowers, it can make all the difference.
