Stick to that one color of yours!

What is your happy color! Mine is yellow. I had my house renovated with just yellow. Coloring the entire house with the same color may be inadvisable. But the results are just astonishing as they could be. The trick here is to color your rooms in the same color but different shades. To make each of your rooms look different from the other, add accessories and install room decors.

Include them windows and doors in the interior.

Painting the doors and windows in the same color is a great option to highlight them. You can consider using a contrast hue on your walls. Applying a lighter shade to the walls can also do wonders to your homes. Another option is to color the doors, windows, and walls with the same color.


Go rare with 3D!

Suppose you are looking to add more definition to your rooms, then what is better than having a 3D painting done in the rooms.

Drip it off.

Paint drips are a unique feature to add to your rooms. All you need to do is fill some good portion of your favorite color paint in a bottle with a nozzle. Now hold the bottle down to the wall and let the paint drip on the wall in a single line. Let the color drip in its natural flow. Let it dry and wait for the results to awe you.

Colorful cabinets and cupboards

While keeping the rooms in one color, you can color the shelves, cupboards, and kitchen cabinets in a completely contrasting color. You can go for two tones look by keeping the cabinets and shelves in the darkest color tone and the walls in a lighter shade. A mix-match color option is not bad either.
