Look to other areas of your life for hints. What is an area you do know your style or tastes in well? Clothes? Cooking? Look for characteristics in these other areas to give you hints as to what you might like. If you like a minimal wardrobe, for instance, you might prefer a minimal interior, too. Take a walk in a neighborhood. Stop and pause at the homes that you seem drawn to. Are they traditional looking? Modern? An eclectic mix of both? Observe what catches your eye and feels nice to you, even the way folks decorate their porches and patios. Stop and pause in front of the homes that pull you in. If you like a traditional style of architecture, you might like clean lines and muted colors in furniture and accessories.
Choose Colors and Flair. Depending on the basic style and influence you're going for, colors will range from black and white to red, white, and blue. Consider colors and patterns that go with your theme along with accent colors, whether that includes chocolate browns, floral designs, denim blues, and more. For example, a colored accent wall can liven up the space or make the size of the room feel bigger. Use color theory and other techniques to choose the right one. You can also take your interior project one step forward by expressing your own personal flair, whether it's rustic, shabby chic, tropical, or western. Consider current decorating trends, how to incorporate furniture and accessories you love, and how you want your area to feel.

"It's always a good idea to start by thinking about colors that make you happy." So don't over think it. Pick a wall color, now that you've selected your inspiration piece, decide which of its colors might look good on your walls. Pick up free paint color samples from any paint store and tape them to your walls. Experiment with different shades of your original color selection. "Remember, your favorite color comes in many different shades," says designer Sophia Stone of Chateau Sophie in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. "Selecting one that compliments all seasons is my first step in picking a color palette for the living room — you want to love it all year long and for years to come.
