Choosing a Room’s Color Scheme

No matter what season, it is important to liven up your living space with pops of color. Incorporating a color scheme to a room, especially in the winter months, can make your home warm and inviting.

A basic rule followed by most interior designers is the 60-30-10 rule. This rule is easy to follow to ensure that a room’s color scheme┬áhas just the right amount of balance for your interior design. For example, 60 percent of the room is the main color, usually the primary paint color; the 30 percent should be your second color, usually the primary furniture color or cabinet color in the space. The remaining 10 percent is what should be used for accent colors. These can be embodied using artwork, accent furniture pieces or linens.
