10. Establish Your Color Scheme Early
The most critical step in updating your space is determining your color scheme (via HGTV). Factor in things like natural lighting, things that won’t change (flooring, for example), and items you’ll be keeping. Decorate from dark to light vertically and start with the house’s formal areas (via HGTV). Use the color wheel to find colors that complement and contrast. Whatever you do, make sure you showcase your own style and not try to emulate something else – that won’t feel authentic. Paint shades that seem trendy include sage green and other soft shades, along with mauve or blush shades for bedrooms. Beige and tan are always in style as well.
