For painting a room, do you go by your instincts or take some inspiration from somewhere like clothes or nature, etc.?
For me it had always been more of instinct but off late i have started taking nature as an inspiration for interior palettes too. Because nature never goes wrong! whatever the combination maybe:)

Being an Interior Designer, I am painting rooms all the time! For the most part my inspiration comes from the latest trends in design especially whats hot in fabrics.
Often I will take a cue from what is in someones closet as that it typically what they feel good surrounding themselves with.
So many people have hardwood floors these days making rugs a necessity. These Beautiful works of art become fabulous color palettes to build a room around particularly antique Persian rugs. This is my personal favorite way to build a room.

I will definitely say, this would be SKY. The mixture and the shade, you will find in the sky, will never get anywhere. I love to color my interior from sky shade.

The colors that inspire me come from my soul. It's all about the way I feel.

Inspiration seems to come from all sorts of weird and wonderful places. We love the way you have matched up the photos with your colour splashes. The beach example works particularly well.

I've had the amusement out for individuals for about a year or thereabouts, just for g4wow Outland gold g4wow.com get their musings on the littlest things. Like how can it grope picking and dropping weapons? A considerable measure of the criticism was that it felt kind of cumbersome, grabbing and dropping things, and despite the fact that I burned through two months dealing with that framework, I wound up rejecting it. It simply wasn't adding for wow Outland gold the get and-play, natural feel that I'm searching for."
