Following the rule of 60-30-10
As there are many options in choosing bold colors, balancing is important. Otherwise the purpose of using bold colors won’t be fulfilled. Interior Designer Mark McCauley proposed the rule of 60-30-10 and claimed that it works every time.
The main concept of the rule is to demonstrate the colors into components of 60 percent of a dominant color in walls, 30 percent of a secondary color in upholstery and 10 percent of an accent color in other accessories. This rule is a perfect combination of expressing bold color with the help of other colors which ensure enough pop for interest.
Keeping it simple or making variations?
Overdoing with colors may create disturbance to the eyes. Simple and symmetric color choice can be a safe option.
But in informal places, various colors can bring happiness and comfort. Following rules in this case can be an example of lack of imagination. Playing off different shades, hues and tints of a color can create an amazing interior.
