Looking for another way to create a cohesive color scheme throughout your home? Try thinking about your color palette as a math problem. For this method to work, you’ll need three colors: a base color, a secondary hue, and a tertiary color. If necessary, you can add a fourth. Anything more than that, and things can start looking chaotic. Your base color should take up 60 to 70 percent of your home. The next color should take up anywhere from 25 to 30 percent. The final color is your accent color, taking up anywhere from five to 10 percent of your home.
If you get bored of using the same scheme in every room, consider switching it up. Let’s say your living room’s main color is gray, your secondary color is blue, and your tertiary color is orange. For the next room, alter the colors and their percentages. For example, the walls can be blue, with gray as an accent. As a final touch, you can scatter a few orange objects around the room. As long as the colors you choose stay consistent, you can change which ones are dominant and which ones aren’t.
