As always, we thank you for reaching out to us with your home decor questions! And let us start by saying it’s exciting to hear that you’re building your first new home! Very exciting!
So, now you’re faced with choosing an interior paint color scheme. You could always go with a standard white or off-white, but maybe you’re looking to be a little bolder and more creative. Tan? Blue? Green? Maybe a hot fuchsia?
