Unexpected Combination

Here are a few tips for working with color.

Start with one color. We chose a mostly monochromatic color scheme of purple. This design principle focuses on a single color with variations in lightness and saturation.

Find an accent. For interest, we tapped into a complementary accent color (colors opposite on the color wheel). A pale, buttery yellow on the ottomans and shams provides a soothing spot to rest the eyes and break up the monochromatic scheme.

Vary shades. To keep things united, look to a paint swatch for guidance. The wall color and mirror color are only two steps away from each other on a paint strip. Similarly, to stay on target with fabrics, use paint strips as guideposts.
