Exciting times, have you picked out the wall colors and other finishing materials?

Hiring an interior designer can save you time, and probably money also by helping you avoid costly mistakes. You said you were from India, but you didn't say if your new home is in India, or in the US or elsewhere. If it's in the US, and you're wanting it to look American with some Indian flair, I think it's doubly important to hire an American designer who can help you create a beautiful cross cultural interior.

Keep your flooring neutral and light, then pick your furniture and area rugs. Plull a color from either for your walls. It is easier and cheaper to repaint then to buy all new furniture to match your paint color, right?

If you can access your home, take some colour samples in shades you like with you and check the light and aspect of each room, that can change colours, some rooms may be a little dull and need bright or cheering colours others may be hot and need cooling colours. It is very important you consider this before you start. Then choose ideas and colours you like and that suit your room, and then go shopping to see what is on the market and available. It is no use getting your mind set on a colour for example and then finding you can't get a fabric in that shade. Flooring will most likely be common to all rooms so you have to ensure the flooring you choose will work with all your planned colour schemes in each room. Check out all your options and things will then start to come together for you.

When shopping pick up as many swatches and samples as you can, even take photos of ideas if you are able, it will all help. Most important thing is to take it slowly. Don't try to have it all done at once. Aim to choose your floor coverings, then have all your rooms painted, and floor coverings laid before you move in. Furniture and furnishings can be added at any time afterwards.
