Interior painting is an important aspect of transforming a house into a home. But even if your interior painting company uses the perfect paint color on your walls, ceiling, and trim, you may find that something is amiss. If the furnishings, wall art, or shape of the room you want to paint don’t fully complement the interior paint color you like, you may think about remodeling your space, buying new furniture, or even taking things into your own hands with some DIY décor projects. But where should you start?
