Gone are the days where when you think of repainting your homes, the color choice would come down to your traditional bright whites and blues—there may have been occasions where you came across an adventurous spirit that may have added a touch of gray or beige but nothing too extreme or different.
Today, home interior painting is all about showcasing your personality through your choice of colors. Professional painters are challenged each time to push their creative abilities to deliver unique home ideas respective to each new client they take on.
You may be such a client but have been worn down by the number of options out there—you may have visited paint shops one after another, saved countless Pinterest options, and probably could start your collection of paint swatches that you’ve racked up over the months.
Worry not, in this article I will share a few painting tips and the latest color trends that will help jump-start your home interior painting process.
Prep and plan
A known trait when it comes to interior painting is to visualize how you would want your room/home to look—to achieve this, clearing out your space is a necessity.
After all, you don't want to be caught regretting ruining your favorite chair or splotching that princess family heirloom.
If you are struggling to relocate your furniture and completely have an empty room, look to move all your pieces of furniture to the center of the room. Cover these pieces with a drop cloth or plastic sheet— also make sure your walls are cleaned and ready for paint primer to be applied.
Research trending color palettes
A blank canvas is always best when it comes to figuring out where your decorative styles lie. You can tell a lot about the kind of person someone is with the way they maintain their homes.
For instance, soothing hues of greens or blue and your creamy whites most likely point to a person who prefers late Saturday night binging over the party life. More colorful and dynamic-looking rooms, including the pieces of furniture, reflect a more outgoing, and vicarious personality.
To help figure out which designs and colors best reflect you, take note of distinct styles that immediately catch your eye and narrow it down as you go.
To get you started, here is our list of trending colors that will light up your room.
Comforting shades of forest green
If you are looking to be one with nature, then what better way than to paint your walls with vibrant yet calming shades of green.
Combining elements of nature invokes a sense of serenity and centeredness. If you are looking to have a more nature appropriate touch to your space, these rich shades
of green will remind you of trees and lush foliage.
As of late, green has also become a popular choice that most homeowners are looking to add to their interior style profile.
On the other hand, if you are looking to invoke the feeling of intimacy and comfort, then saturated shades like your blues and grays are ideal.
Light and pastel shades
Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to jump to painting everything in white to make your rooms feel more spacious.
With the abundance of choice available when it comes to picking colors, opt for muted and neutral shades as they can make any room feel airy, open, and bigger. Today, most homeowners are jumping at the choice of pastel shades as they add a touch of freshness and excitement to their homes.
These muted tones are also fantastic when it comes to highlighting textures and accent walls.
