How to choose a color for your design?
You can start by thinking about what your favorite color is. Or if you want a trendy look, do research on the trending colors and choose whatever suits your extant home design. Take note of every color shift that defines your home. When doing so, keep the color wheel with you to check which colors go with each other better. Better put, there is no right or wrong color but it is all about the combination of them with a honed skill in choosing the right tonality.
When choosing a color, it is also important to decide on what kind of design and mood you aim for. For example, do you want something nature-inspired and cozy? Or do you wish for something more masculine and industrial? Such guiding questions help you to negotiate in your mind what color is best for your design. On the other hand, you can check the catalogs of paint companies like Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams to learn more about paint colors.
