The Scheme of Things

One of the hardest design skills to master is choosing hues that work together. Picking palettes can feel like somewhat of a guessing game. Should you pair chartreuse with cinnabar? How about aubergine and aquamarine?

Often the best way to know what color schemes work is through trial and error. Instead of wasting your time and money painting and repainting,
here’s an idea to help you skip this stress: find a multicolored inspiration piece that speaks to you (ideally with three or more colors), then draw from its tones to decorate your room.
Start from the Finish
An accent chair is a great finishing touch, but the real trick is to plan your look around its colors so your room is perfectly coordinated.
Give a Hint
If you’re starting with art, consider using one of the piece’s more subtle notes as your main color inspiration for a look that’s smart without appearing overly calculated.

Narrow It Down
Area rugs often give us a wide range of colors to work with. Choose two or three hues from your rug and stay within these tones for your walls, window treatments and accessories.

Treasure a Chest
When you incorporate its colors into your design, an accent chest will never feel forced or out of place.
