Create a color mood board.
A color mood board is an organized way to layout all your ideas and inspiration, so you can see what will work for your space. Magazine cutouts, paint chips, fabric swatches, photos, can all go on your mood board. Don’t feel like you have to jam all your ideas into one gigantic board, you can always create a mood board for each room in your home.

Try a monochromatic color scheme.
If you’re aiming for a more classic and modest color scheme, a neutral monochromatic color scheme is your best choice. It’s based on one neutral color – like white, beige, grey, etc – and uses its various shades and tones to add depth and character. To keep your space from appearing dull and boring, add texture and patterns through decorative accessories, accent chairs, throw pillows, and rugs.
