I often get emails from people who have been in their homes for a while, but have done little to no decorating. Not because they didn’t want to, but because they just didn’t know where to start–and were afraid of possibly making a mistake. Maybe you have a similar problem and just need some guidance to get you going in the right direction.
So, where to start?
Although I don’t think there’s a real right or wrong answer, here’s my best advice. . .
Don’t pick your paint color first. I’m always surprised when I hear someone say they’re going to paint their living room avocado green, but they haven’t picked anything else. To me, paint color should be the complement to everything else (the perfect backdrop), and I try to always choose it last.
