when you see some setting you like take note of the colors and size of what you see. Do not be affraid of color. Color adds warmth to a house creating a home. As a homemaker, and a working one at that, I want my home to be the one place that is warm and cozy yet reflects my style. I always love italian bistros so my kitchen is done as one. I love the tropics and old european too....so each room has a theem....but they all are connected by one nuetral color. So figure out what you like and then mimick it!
Know that mistakes happen but paint is so forgiving.... If you decide its not for you just change it again. Don't be affraid to try new colors or techniques it is the uniqueness that will endear it to you and make others say "WOW!" . My art studio is my favorite room in my home. It is done like a jamaican beach. I have palm trees and a jamaican sunset painted on the window. with a colorful awning.
