Repeat the Palette

Use a Dash of White

Color and Pattern

When you dial a pattern, you need to dial down the color to achieve a cool effect. Yes, you can start with something bold, but you need to stick with the same pattern and color. Don’t break the rhythm by using a different color or pattern midway.

If you are using muted color as your base, don’t break the pattern by introducing vibrant colors. You need to stay loyal to the look you want to achieve. Therefore, once you pick a calm color, stick with quiet hues but don’t use dreary or diluted version of the base color.

Avoid overusing something. There are many different colors of cream. If used properly, they can be eccentric but use it too much, and they create a sad and outdated vibe.

Experiment with Percentages

You can get more use out of a small group of colors if you change in between them. Yes, push accent colors to the foreground. Walls are not the only thing you need to create a statement. You can do it with curtains, lamps, seating options, etc.

Walls are only a part of your design. So just because you have painted them with a specific color, it doesn’t mean they dominate everything else. You still need to consider your furniture, décor, and other elements.
