January, the month of resolutions and reinventions! If you want to start painting this month but have no idea where to start, this article is the gentle encouragement you need to inspire you to make little changes to your home. We gathered some zoom painting ideas that will make your walls look good for the camera.

Colorful Change

If you are new at mixing colors, then read about the 60-30-10 principle. 60 is the dominant color that is usually painted on the majority of your walls and it’s the color of big furniture pieces. 30 is the supporting color, which can be the soft furnishings and feature or accent wall. 10 is the accent color, which can be the color of your home accessories.

Another helpful read would be knowing about color schemes.

Following this color guide will help you create a cohesive look even if you combine vibrant colors like blues and yellows.

Colors as Cheerleaders

This space is an instant mood boost with its bright pink accent wall and bold vinyl flooring. A good rule to follow is to paint your active rooms with happy hues that make you smile every time you walk into a room. This could be your inspiration if you’re going for a casual style and a vibrant color scheme for your workspace, dining area, or your kid’s room.

Side note: Your zoom buddies will not see these interesting floor detail but you’ll never know! You might “accidentally” show it to them one fine day.
