I have found that it is a very difficult job for most people to make a decision on what color to select when painting a room. The choices of paint colors available nowadays to select from make it so hard to make a decision. The majority of my clients decide that they want to start decorating after they have painted the room. Most of the time they visit the paint store, talk to the sales staff at the store and they select based on what colors they like, or they go by the suggestions of the sales associate in the store. In most cases the paint color is not quite right. First when selecting colors it has to be in your own environment and that is crucial if you want a successful project. Colors change based on the lighting in that particular space and the reflections of other colors that already exists in it.
Second it is important to select your fabrics first, then it becomes so easy to pull all the colors out of the fabric and make a decision on which color you prefer. Once you have selected the color you prefer, then you could go lighter or darker based on what type of design you are trying to achieve!
