What Color Or Style Best Suits You Or The Room?

So think about what color and style would best suit the room and that you know you’ll still love looking at a few months from now. Is it a small room? Light colors are great for making the room seem bigger. Likewise, bigger rooms tend to benefit from darker colors that make the room feel cozier. Will the color clash with the paint or wallpaper? Are there going to be a lot of messes that would stain a white carpet?
