Give Bold a Try
When it comes to choosing a paint color, it’s OK to break the rules. Making a room darker is a guaranteed way to give it instant “wow factor.” Try using a bold dark hue in the bedroom or a bright, sunny yellow in the living room. Follow these top tips for choosing paint colors.
Follow the 10-30-60 Rule
Once you have your color scheme decided, you’ll need to decide how they will work together. This is where the 10-30-60 rule comes into play. Choose a dominant color which you’ll use for 60 percent of the space, a secondary shade (30 percent) and an accent color (10 percent). Dominant colors are often applied on walls and floor coverings. Secondary colors work well on furniture and the accent color is reserved for accessories such as throw pillows, a flower vase or a lamp shade. Try using copper in your decor as an accent.
