What gets you excited when you are starting a new decorating project?
For me, it’s all about fabrics, paint colors and adding those special touches to a room for the finishing touches.
So, where do you start when putting together a room. I always tell folks to use fabric as your inspiration starting point. You can’t go wrong with that plan and it will send you down the right path to a beautiful room.
Paint color choices come next, once you’ve got your fabrics figured out. Those fabrics will set the tone for your space and there are tons of paint colors to choose from that will highlight your fabric choices so well.
Recently, when my sister and I tackled her master suite renovation, we started with fabrics. So, when you are looking for a change, the fabric store is a great place to start. This will kick-start that perfect paint color. And oh how paint color on the wall can change things up so much!
Finding the right fabrics is the first step for me in putting a room together and then you can pull your paint colors out of those fabrics, just like we did with these 2 colors for my sister’s master suite. We choose Windsor Greige for the bedroom walls.
And Comfort Gray for the bathroom walls. Here’s my sister’s finished space, if you missed it.
Finding that perfect paint chip is sometimes daunting. I have painted samples and repainted samples on many occasions searching for that elusive perfect color, but I hope this will help you with that task.

Paint creates a mood, sets the tone, and gives an overall feel to a room. I hope the ideas you will get from this fun quiz will give you some ammunition next time you are facing a color scheme challenge in your own space.
