interior paint on dining room walls, ceiling and trimThere are a lot of places to find inspiration for new color choices and accents for room painting. Take a look at home store advertising flyers, catalogs and magazines, or TV and movies. If you keep your eyes open, you'll find many good and bad ideas for painting and decorating your home, all around you. We've included in this article some interior painting tips that we thought would fall into the good idea column.

Try Deep Colors on Walls

Rejuvenating your decor can be as easy as adding a new, dynamic color to your walls or even just one wall of a room. This can be a quick and easy way to revive and renew the feel of your home without lots of work or expense. If you already have white or off-white trim and ceiling paint, adding an accent color to the walls can be done in a day or two.

Painting all the walls a deep, intense color and the trim white like this can create a feeling of refinement and sophistication. Using white on the ceiling will reinforce this motif.interior paint on dining room walls, ceiling and trim This is a particularly good look for older homes with wide, ornate moldings, but can also work well in a newer townhouse or condo with lots of door and window trim.

For a touch of class, try using a deep color such as burnt orange or dark red to accent one wall of a living room or bedroom. Having one wall a much deeper color will focus attention there and distract from other less attractive features such as heating vents and a dark corner. This effect can also make a narrow room look larger and more inviting or make your living room the focal point of your home.

Paint Wall Stripes

Another way to put some pop into your decor is to paint vertical stripes on your walls. This is another scheme that works well as an accent on just one wall, or the whole room. Stripes can also be a good idea for painting a bathroom or kitchen.

For a more conservative but still daring scheme, use muted earth tone stripes on your walls. Add a bit of sophistication to your living room, for instance, using two subtle colors of alternating stripes like beige and bone white. Wide stripes of about 10 inches, using muted colors like this, can soften the striping effect making it blend with the decor and tie a room together.

Off-White Adds Warmth

To add warmth to your home try using a dark, off-white like antique or bone white on the ceiling and trim. The darker color will bring less attention to the ceiling than if a traditional white is used. This can make the ceiling feel lower and as a result everything feel cozier. The darker trim adds to this feeling, especially when using earth tone wall colors. But that doesn't mean this is not a good choice to accent bright wall colors too, darker ceiling and trim paint will help any room that needs a little warming up.
