Now that you have a good idea of a style, now you need to select a colour scheme. This is a tough part. Colour is so personal and creates mood within us that inspires. No matter what colours call for you. Look at the inspiration boards- what colours are prominent in your room. Well, it totally depends upon you which colour to chose, but it is better to try and mix three colour and shades. One main colour for the walls, another colour for larger accents like couches and chairs and third colour for small accessories like pillow, flowers and other knick knacks. Remember colour is influenced by how much light you bring to the home. Consider using floor to ceiling windows to enhance interior and bring out colours too. For example, if you select colour combination of brown, teal and tangerine. The brown would probably wall colour, teal may be the colour for your accent chairs or accent wall, tangerine could be the colour to pull out pillows and accessories. This formula works best and one colour is boring. Yes, you can have a white room with three shades of white.
Texture, Pattern

Equally important to colour or shades in the room is texture- especially if you crave for a single colour scheme as all white or all grey. At a first glance, it may appear like a single colour scheme, but if you look closely, you will notice different shades within same colour and plenty of texture fabric or textiles. All in all white room may have linen drapery, a plush velvet chair, shiny curtains, rattan chairs, woven basket, nubby cotton sofa with faux fur blanket. All these elements add texture to the room, and attract the people attention, thus creating warm, rich environment. Design describes the personality of the home owner, so by using textures, patterns and different colours even a dull room can turn into a pleasing room with ease.
Consider the textiles that suit your lifestyle. If you have dogs and kids, then you may require light cotton sofa, rather than dark leather sofa to suit your needs. If you crave for luxury, then silk drapery and pillows are must. Whatever the style is, try to add plenty of texture by adding numerous textiles to the home.
Add statement to your furniture

It is the most common mistake that most of the homeowners make- too many spindly pieces in a room. A room with leggy chairs, tables and lot of knick knacks only clutter the room and confuse the eyes. Instead try for a room that is well mixed. Have a big sofa, with some skirted club chairs and one or two slender arm chairs with attractive legs depending upon the space. It is just one example, but now you have an idea of mixing different styles of furniture and sizes, so that the room looks balanced and not too bulky and spindly. Even if you are decorating a small apartment, there are plenty of decoration ideas. Most designers will recommend that even the smallest room should have a single large statement piece, like armoire or cabinet. A mixture of big and small is the key to successful design. This rule goes well for accessories too.
