Last week, I broke down how to use the color wheel when selecting colors for a space. This week, I’ll share how much of each color to use in order to achieve a harmonic, stylish balance. This is the 60-30-10 rule.
Following this rule will allow your eyes to seamlessly flow from one focal point to the next without startling obstructions. Sixty percent of the room should be a dominant color, 30 percent of the room should be a secondary color and 10 percent should be the accent color! Simple right? I know! :)
An easy way to apply this rule is to focus the 60 percent portion on your wall color, the 30 percent for your furniture or upholstery, and the 10 percent for accents like throw pillows, floral arrangements or other small decorative accessories.
Here are some examples in the slideshow! Stay tuned for my article about my own living room “redeco” job, where I put my own advice into action!
