What Houzz contributors are saying:
Make a triangle of tonesI plan my neutral colour schemes using a rule of three, focusing the bulk of the space on three hues or tones. Too many colours create confusion and distraction, and too few create a one-dimensional room without depth.Tip: As a rule I have one dominant colour (normally for the wall), the second is subsidiary (for example flooring, cabinetry or furniture), and the final one is for woodwork or accents (light features, doors, feature walls, rugs or window dressings). This room showcases this rule well. The light-cream walls provide the dominant colour, the charcoal carpet is the subsidiary colour and the black fireplace is the accent colour.Which paints for which walls?
