Home Color Ideas and Learning Advice

Color is the most important part of interior decorating and as we are constantly finding color ideas everywhere we look, we need to be able to select color and make decisions to enhance the interior space we want to decorate.

That entails choosing multiple colors, and can become overwhelming.

That is why we have broken down the colors to show their color meanings, we profile, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, gray and brown to help you understand how color makes us feel. This is an easy way to rule out some colors for our interiors.

We also show how to combine these colors using the color wheel, this is a simple formula to enable you to make informed color scheme decisions, red schemes, orange schemes, yellow schemes, green schemes, blue schemes and purple schemes.
