Choosing colors for home decor should be done according to personal preference and the emotions they invoke.
Choosing colors for home decor should be done according to personal preference and the emotions they invoke.
Relying on their instincts and personal preferences, homeowners can make choosing a color scheme for their rooms a lot of easier on themselves.


According to IdeasForHomeDecorating.com, individuals need only look as far as their choices for clothing to see what their favorite color combinations are. If those are the colors they feel comfortable wearing each day, they are more than likely going to be pleasing as a room color.


"Go with your emotional reaction to color, and build on it," the website advises. "Develop a habit of observing and thinking about a particular interior color scheme that appeals to you. Note the main color, then all the hues and tones."

Other inspiration can be taken from nature, whether the greens and browns of a forest or the blue and sand colors of the seaside.

Once the basic color scheme is chosen, it can be refined by choosing complementary colors and fabrics for soft furnishings such as window treatments. Honeycomb shades add texture and color to a room, while providing energy savings by trapping air to conserve heat in winter and cool down hot rooms in summer.
