Choosing colour combinationsis one of the most intimidating steps for beginners. Colour has the power to change the shape and size of furnishings, as well as the shape and size of the room itself. Selecting colours is not difficult if you equip yourself with some basic information about colour and its effects. If you need help answering these questions, look at magazines, decorating books, blogs and websites for ideas. Also, let your textiles be your guide. Fabric, carpeting, furniture and tile are available in a more limited range of colours than paint, so choose them first and then decide on your paint colour. Once you find something you like, limit the number of colours in a room to no more than three or four. Too many colours can make a room look busy or cluttered.
