Don't Overload Your Palette
While a mixture of colors can be beautiful, too many or the wrong shades together can create a disastrous look. Follow a favorite color scheme, like monochromatic or complementary, and stick with the 60-30-10 rule to create the perfect palette.
Don't Forget the 60-30-10
Follow the color principal of 60-30-10 to create an aesthetically pleasing color scheme. Divide your color choices into percentages: 60 percent is a dominant color, 30 percent is a secondary color and 10 percent is the accent color.
Don't Ignore Your Lighting
Always consider how lighting will affect your color choices. Before finalizing your selections, see how each color will look in the room during different times of the day.
Don't Think Neutral Means Beige
While beige is a neutral, shades of your favorite colors can also act as neutrals in your room. A neutral just needs to be a balance of warm and cool tones
Don't Always Rely on Color Trends
Adding a trendy color to a room's palette can be the fresh take you need, but choose where you use the trend wisely. Wall colors and accessories can be easily switched out, but when purchasing furniture, choose shades that will stand the test of time
