If you are like most Atlanta natives, you’re looking to give your southern haven a fresh new update without Interior Design Atlantaemptying your bank account. We all want to come home to a beautiful, vibrant living space that reflects our own unique tastes – but we also want to accomplish this feat without breaking our budgets. Luckily, some interior painting techniques and a few simple changes can spruce up your interior decor for only a small price.

If you review any of the publications on interior design Atlanta has to offer, you may have noticed a few new trends. Firstly, one of the biggest trends of the year so far is horizontal stripes. Instead of tacky wall paper that curls and peels over time, or plain one-color walls, consider stripes. Professionals can achieve this look but taping strips evenly across your wall space. After painting and removing the tape, the color underneath is exposed. For ultimate contrast and a daring effect, choose a deep rich hue combined with stark white stripes. Vertical stripes, squares and other patterns are also quite popular around Atlanta.

Another hot trend is primary colors. You might remember the accent wall trend that rapidly spread throughout the design world just a few years ago. While this concept is still very popular, some homeowners are taking an even bolder step now with these painting ideas. Now, you’ll find entire rooms painted one bright primary color – fire engine red, deep ocean blue or canary yellow. Of course, if you go this route you’ll want to make sure that your furniture and other decor is slightly more subdued so as not to overwhelm the room.

Atlanta’s neighborhoods, and surrounding rural spaces, are marked by red clay, pine trees and, in the spring, soft pink dogwood blooms. If you’d like a more classic look that complements the landscape surrounding your home, consider painting your house interior with one of these beautiful nature-inspired shades and echo these colors throughout the rest of your home decor. Often, when choosing the best palate, you need only to look outside.
