  • The interior design style you want to create. 
  • The colors of the already ’’existing‘’ furniture. 
  • The source through which you wish to add colors, for instance, the paint, wallpapers, wall decals, 3D wall tiles, wall tiles.
The safer way to start with is by adding colors in the form of soft furnishing such as the curtains, rugs, table runner, wall decors such as paintings, photo frames, cushions, bed linens, pillows, quilts. Since these are available in various colors, patterns, and textures, you could easily add in, to transform your space.
