PICK a Pattern: Starting with a pattern is the easiest way to
create a color palette for your decor. Choose a pattern from any object
you already have and love such as a pillow, picture or piece of furniture.
This will be your color palette !
SEE 3 Colors: Select a light, medium and dark color from your
pattern to be used as your foundation. You may want to go to a hardware
store and select color chips from the paint department that match your
pattern to carry with you in case you come across a great find and need to
know if it matches.
LMD: Light, Medium and Dark - How you use these colors can affect
the overall appearance of your room.
- Light- Is the Background- this is usually easy to achieve
since most rentals are equipped with light to off-white walls.
- Medium- Large furniture and windows - Since the color of
these objects will blend with the above lighter selection, the medium
furniture will ground the room and give it a foundation.
- Darker- Accessories. Since your eye is drawn to a darker more
intense color you will be able to arrange you accessories in a manner
to guide the eye flowing through your room.
