Make sure that you plan your colors in overview so that they blend, flow & move with ease through your home. Your aim is to develop an overall blueprint, an impression of what you want to achieve, & to have your rooms complement each other.
Remember, you’re developing your own style. Don’t be afraid to mix & match as long as there’s a unifying or integrating theme. Experiment with a mix & match interplay of colors & fabrics. Mix luxurious silks, soft & lush velvets, with more earthy rough textured cottons. Or whatever other fabric & color attracts & resonates with you.
