When it comes to choosing a color scheme for your house, there is no one-size-fits-all option. Everyone has different tastes and preferences. The real key in choosing a color scheme for your house is to decide how you want your home to feel. Style matters but not nearly as much as how your home makes you feel when you are there. Paint color choice can have a big impact on the way your home looks and feels. If you are struggling to decide which colors to choose, start by thinking about how you want your home to feel. Do you like houses that feel bright, airy, and open? Do you prefer to be in a house that feels cozy and warm? Are you drawn to houses that are interesting and eye-catching? Starting with how you want to feel in your home is a way for you to narrow down the options and hopefully find the color scheme that is right for you.

Cozy and warm
There was a time when cozy and warm colors on walls were all the rage. Golds, deep reds, and dark greens were commonly used in homes to create a warm environment. If you gravitate toward a warm design scheme, there are colors you can choose from that will create a warm environment without looking outdated. For example, there are some shades in the yellow family that are both warm and currently in style. Look for inspiration by exploring home décor accessories such as throw pillows and blankets. Chances are you will find options you love with a warm color scheme that you can emulate with your paint choices.
Interesting and eye-catching
If an airy or warm color scheme both sound boring to you then you should consider going for interesting and eye-catching instead. Jewel tones are a popular paint choice for homeowners who prefer bold options. Pink is also making a comeback as a color that can be painted in grownup areas such as the dining room or living room. It’s your house – make it as interesting as you want! And, the good new about paint color choice is that you can change it quickly and inexpensively.
