Author: Dedi Walker: Choosing the color palette for your décor is the first step in determining the color scheme for your entire home. There is an interesting method of choosing a color palette for your décor. All you have to do is pick the object that is used or enjoyed by you the most - say a piece of furniture, clothing or your favorite picture, and closely observe the pattern on it. Our rule of thumb is to choose one of those patterns for your entire home. This is one of the easiest methods of choosing a pattern first.

The next step is of course matching your pattern with the respective colors. The hardware shop is the best place to shop for various colors - preferably light, medium and dark to begin with. If you haven't been to a Home Depot or Lowe's lately, you'll be amazed at the wide variety of color shades that are available. You're sure to be able to find any color that your heart desires! Paint swatches are typically displayed in an easy-to-read fashion. Many of these paint colors are carried in stock, while others are mixed on-site in front of your own eyes.

Remember that the color shades should nicely match the colors in the pattern selected by you earlier. Once the colors match, your problem of finding color scheme for your home is half done.

It is very important to know that the mixing of colors is what it matters the most when it comes to finding the color scheme for your home. In other words the light, the medium and the dark colors have to be nicely combined to create an excellent visual effect.

Light color is usually picked for backgrounds. Medium is picked for furniture and windows. The dark color is picked for all the accessories in your home. This is due to the fact that you want your neighbor and your visitor to visually pick out the accessories in your home quite easily and quickly, and it can often be done only with the application of darker colors for the décor.

There is actually a term for this accepted method – it's called the LMD factor. L stands for light, M stands for medium and D stands for dark.

If the methods described above are followed to precision, you will not experience any sort of difficulty in finding the right color scheme for your home. Now let's get started!

Some prospective home buyers prefer to have these homes already built, while others are interested in acquiring a prefab home kit, where they can have some influence over the design, and then control the construction of the home.
