When choosing interior paint colors, coordinate shades with the furniture and rugs in the room.
When you want certain pieces to stand out, contrast them to the color scheme of the room, using brighter colors to stand out against a darker room and vice versa. Here are a few suggestions for interior paint color schemes, divided into the best choices for different rooms.
For the kitchen, find inspiration in traditional Tuscan colors, embracing a bit of European flair. Use a color such as Chilli Pepper to bring in the colors of the wines and sauces of Italy. Accent with natural wood tones and mettalic finishes.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Where bedrooms are concerned, darker colors can create drama and romance. Goblin is a timeless choice, as it looks lush and comforting in any bedroom. Burgundy paint colors can have a similar effect. Brighter reds and blues, however, can be a bit too striking in a bedroom. Opt for softer, comforting tones.
For the bathroom, Bimini Blue makes an impact. When paired with cermaic or marble tiled floors, showers or countertops, it can create an aquatic feel that's immensely pleasing to the eye. Darker shades of blue are better-suited to bathrooms with bright fixtures.
For communal spaces like living rooms, softer tones like Gray Shadows, light blue or white create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. If you're looking for darker, warmer tones, deep ruddy browns like Burgundy Wine will make any living room seem like a great place to relax.
The best way to choose paint colors for your home is to find a color scheme that speaks to the atmosphere you desire.
