A good departure point for selecting a colour palette for your project is basing it on your favourite, most inspiring colour – the colour that provides you with a sense of well-being. You can explore innumerable monochromatic colour schemes — choosing various shades of your favourite colour or two complementary colours that will permeate your environment with style and personality.
How to do it
Choose a wall colour in a lighter shade than your upholstery colours. Add colour accents that coordinate with the predominant colour. If your carpets are multi-coloured, paint three walls (60% of your space) with a colour similar or lighter than the predominant colour in the carpet pattern, and then paint the remaining walls with the second most predominant carpet colour. Add that special decorative touch with vases, curtains, lamps and other accessories that coordinate with the upholstery.
