Basic Color Theory: 60/30/10
60% - should be one color, 30% - the other and only 10% will be your accent color
1. Cool and Monochromatic. It is good to have some blue (calming, cooling color) in every room. Find the way to use the blue with different color pallets.
Use multiply shades of the same color, from soft to saturated. However, you need to be sure, that you have a balance of various shades. It should go smoothly from the bedding to the walls,
Monochromatic color works in any room, but especially it is good to have in the bedroom.
Proportion the shades.
60% - medium blue. 30% - darker. 10% - light blue
2. Complementary color pallet. For example, orange and blue, even though they are in opposite side of the color will, like the red and green or yellow and purple.
Colors on opposite side of a color wheel pairs well together.
3. Analogous color, which is next to each other on the color pallet wheel: green, blue and purple. You can choose up to 6 colors of the same shade, if you like them and use them all. For a
dramatic impression use the bold color as an accent.
Tips on Decoration
Invest in a neutral base; you can later change your look with décor. For example, your sofa should have a neutral color
1. Organic glam. You can mix wood or fir with velvet which creates very calming look. Green, grey and gold color pallet is neutral and warm. It is a perfect base for texture
2. Parisian Glam. It is light pink and green accent, soft colors, and feminine style. Pastel is everywhere.
3. Tropical Glam. It is a fun way to decorate. Secret is to go bold with the colors. But it is good to balance it out with a neutral textures. Gold, green, pink are perfect to look like a glamorous
Another way to decorate is create a “man glam”(masculine style). It is all about dark, rich fabric, which makes your style more inviting and relaxing. It is dark blue, brown and gold color, which
makes your space more intimate and sophisticated. Touch of leather or a chest set on the coffee table brings some luxurious look, as well.
How to Tie Home Décor Together
If you plan to paint the walls, first do the test spots on the wall and check it out when the light is changing during the day.
1. Paint all walls the same color, like a neutral light gray. It will be easier to tie home together and decorate. Neutral Choices: Coconut, lavender, mesquite, petrol. One room should be inviting to
the other room.
2. Stick with one furniture style for the whole room: Modern, Traditional, Country, and Coastal
3. Pick the same color palette: orange, dark blue, light blue, green. Golden dark and light, blue dark and light.
Purple darn and light, green dark and light. Brown dark and light, blue dark and light.
4. Use complementary colors, which are across each other on the color wheel, but will create a perfect combination with each other.
5. Use similar wood and metallic tones through the home
Choose correct size of Rugs
The right rug size will ground the room and define the area. It is better to have a bigger rug than a small one. The small rug would make room look cluttered. 3 ways for the living room: all legs
are on the rug, only front legs of the furniture are on the rug, or no legs are on the rug. The side table front legs should be partly on the rug (3”-5”).
In dining area all chairs should be on the rug when they are pulled out.
In the small bedroom a rug goes partly under the bed, but not under the night stand. The rug should provide the comfort for the legs to step on in the morning. For the queen size bed get a rug
size 5 x 8.
