6 tips on how to use colour

  • As a guide, allow your main color to occupy 75% of a room (including floor and wall space), with 15 to 20% for your secondary color and 10% for an accent color
  • To visually expand a room, keep the color contrast between wall and window low
  • To make a room feel cosier, create a high contrast.
  • Use neutral- and pastel-colored window treatments when you want other furnishings; a prized painting or sofa to make bold statements
  • Neutral and pastels colors not only invoke a sense of calm but create an illusion of height
  • Bold colors play down a room's loft; select bold colors for your window treatments if you want them to be the room's coordinating feature or its chief attraction
