One of my dearest friends is moving into a beautiful home this month and has started the (daunting) task of identifying paint colors for each room. We share a similar taste in style, and we love changing it up every now and then!

Since they purchased their home, my friend and I have spent many a night scanning inspiration photos, chatting over FaceTime, and dreaming up ideas for each space. I love seeing what my dear friend has chosen for her home and am inspired to consider refreshing touches to ours, too! Today, I’m sharing a few tips I’ve learned in redecorating – the simple way.

To make room for color and pattern, consider a muted palette of paint. Keeping it simple allows you to change up a pillow here and there, add in a patterned blanket, recover a sofa in something bold, or a multitude of alternatives for when that room gets a tad boring.

Personally, I gravitate towards ice blues, cool mint greens, and a calming grey. However, when trying to match tones, look for the “undertone.” Many colors have a yellow or blue undertone. Try and find complementary color ways to create a consistent and clean look in your home.

Add accents true to you. Bringing sentimentality into your design will create warmth and a true sense of “home.” In our home, we have pieces of driftwood we found by a river on a cross country road trip out west. We scattered family photos among books with special meaning and even included some (very brightly) colored artwork by our talented toddler!
