What colors do I choose to decorate with and how much of each looks good?

Resources and pictures from http://www.stlouishousepainting.com/stlouis_painting/interior-painting/the-classic-color-rule-60-30-10/

use the 60 30 10 rule
Use the 60-30-10 rule
  • When deciding on a color scheme for a room, follow the style of a man in a business suit:
  • 60% of his outfit’s color is the slacks and jacket
  • 30% of his outfit’s color is the shirt
  • 10% of his outfit’s color is the tie
for a room this roughly translates as

60% of the room’s color is the walls

30% of the room’s color is the furniture

10% of the room’s color is an accent piece or decorative pieces

This color scheme works well because it provides a sense of balance and allows the colors to visually flow in a room.

For a room this roughly translates as:

slide4
60 percent should be the dominant colorIt should be visually appealing and compliment the style and personality of the room. 
slide6
And 10 percent should be a bold accent color displayed through decorations like throw pillows and blankets or a floral arrangement.

  • “I already have furniture that I can’t easily change, so what will look best with my furniture?”
  • TIPS: Furniture is usually your 30% so think of colors that will look good with your upholstery or furniture materials.
  • TIPS: What feeling do you want? A dark or light or bold color for walls will change the feeling of the room dramatically.
