Home Decor Planning - Before you Start
Before you do anything to plan change your home decor – whether it’s just one room or the entire house, ask yourself (and others in your family, if it’s a group decision), what do you want to accomplish.
Is it just to get a fresh look with a new color on the walls, or is it to really throw out the old and start all over again?
Home Decor Planning - Wall Paints
If it’s a new wall color you’re considering, make sure the paint you purchase will complement your existing furnishings.
Don’t rush out to your nearest home supply store and purchase a can of paint because it’s on sale or you think the color will do. Get several paint swatches and bring them home.
In fact, many stores now have sample jars of paint that enable you to actually paint a small portion of your wall to see how that particular color works with your scheme. Get several and paint them on the wall, let them dry and view these colors in a different light; i.e., daylight and artificial light to determine
which color really does enhance your room’s furnishings. A color that looks really great during the daylight hours can look entirely different in artificial light. So, do your homework and you’ll be pleased with the new look.
Even if it is just a new paint job!
Home Decor Planning - How to proceed

You can get the bug by looking at a magazine and imagining some home decorating ideas, or seeing a beautiful fabric in a store and suddenly feeling that yours just doesn’t match up.
