Decorating your home so that it feels inviting to visitors and comfy to you can be a challenge. You need to consider a lot of elements, from seating height to how much you have to spend. Make the process easier on yourself by choosing a group of paint colours to use throughout your entire home.
This Old House explains how to use this paint palette to make your rooms feel connected:
Say you choose a yellow, a green, and a blue. Paint one room yellow, but make sure it has an accessory in blue and green. In the next room, paint the walls a lighter tint of one of the three colours, and again make sure all three colours are present somewhere in the room.
Start yourself off by thinking about what colours match the mood you want for the main room, then build the other colours around that choice. You can even use the leftover paint for colour accents elsewhere in the house. If you're worried about painting because you rent, remember that there are plenty of other ways to decorate without upsetting your landlord.
