Paint is the best decorating tool | Siouxland Homes


Have you ever come up with a decorating idea for your home and then been able to see it through completion? If you have, certainly you are have experienced that sensation of satisfaction, the sheer pleasure derived from the process of change. For most, the interior walls of a home are the largest areas one will ever have to work with to express a personal sense of style and creativity.

There are so many ways to change a room through the design of its walls. Sometimes it’s just a fresh coat of paint in a new color that gives a room a new look. A change in color, pattern and texture can aid in changing the dynamics of the room, and sometimes even the way it functions. For example, a dark small bedroom can become a bright and cheerful card room by changing the color on the walls to clear tints and light tones, regardless of the furniture styles.

Strategizing the scheme for a room, the style and mood can be exciting and fun, but also daunting and confusing. Seeking for ideas, colors and patterns can be a bit of a fun treasure hunt. Your inspiration may take you through museums, designer show houses, furniture store vignettes, shelter magazines and the pages of design books. The best idea for any project is to start a file, collecting advertisements of desired pieces of furniture. Paint swatches of favorite colors for your local paint store or wallpaper samples all should become a part of your inspiration board.
