I'm going to tell you something that you may not know. In fact, you may want to argue with me about it. But, believe me, it's the truth.
Your wall color should be one of the last things you choose when decorating.
Yup, that's the truth. Why? Well, it's much easier to choose a paint color that matches or complements your furnishings than the other way around.
Paint can be tinted to an endless amount of colors. But have you ever tried to find just the right color fabric for a sofa, or window treatments, or a rug that coordinates with your wall color? Talk about frustrating!
If you're redesigning your entire space, it would make sense to choose all fabrics and colors together. But wait until you've chosen your color palette before you go to the paint store. Then it makes sense to bring samples of your items and fabrics to match.
If you're redecorating over time, but anxious to paint your room, contain your excitement. You'll be happy that you did.
