Balance and Beauty


I have discussed balanced color schemes before in this newsletter. To refresh our memories, balance is achieved by using about 70% of your main color, 20% of a secondary color and 10% of an accent color. In this photo of my client’s living room, you can see the emphasis on the blue in the windows, the rug, the chairs and the blue and white lamps. The red bookcases are a perfect example of the use of an accent color. This is one of my favorite color schemes! Blue and white porcelain with red accents is a fresh and timeless color scheme. Picture a red tulip in a blue and white vase or throw pillows in blues and reds on a white sofa. Give these colors a try- you will love them!
