Color Tips For Home Design
When deciding on your color palette, always make sure to add a couple of neutrals into it. No matter how bold your chosen colors are, your color palette is guaranteed to stay elegant if there’s at least one neutral. This may look boring on its own but what happens is that you use feature colors on small walls, for example, and use the neutrals for ceiling and the other walls. Then bring the look together with artwork, photographs or decoration which actually brings the featured color onto the neutral wall tastefully.
Look at how neutral the color scheme is in the above picture. The designer has used the yellow painted furniture and picked up the color in the flowers in the room. Bright colors have been introduced, but the basic backdrop of the design is a neutral color which really gives the whole space light. Image from Flicker by Interior Style
