Have a look at your house and analyze your furniture; does it match your home? Is there too much going on? If you answered yes to that question then maybe it's time to move your current furniture to the storage room (or sell it) and replace it with something more in line with the atmosphere you are trying to create in your home.

For example, soft, light, and neutral colours bring a quieter and more relaxing feeling to a room. On the other hand, darker and stronger colours bring more excitement and drama to the room. You have to decide what type of atmosphere you want to bring to your house and then try and pick the right colour combination to match that atmosphere.
