As designers we recommend color continuity throughout a house. However, this doesn’t mean using the same color scheme in every room – how boring would that be! It does, however, mean a smooth color transition from one room to the next.
One connecting color will serve to accomplish this. It could be a soft green shade – or robin’s egg blue – or buttercup yellow – any color actually. The key is to use your connecting color in varying degrees of intensity from room to room. Sometimes your main color in one room would then be better used as an accent color in an adjoining room. It might be carpeting in one room; walls in another; an occasional chair in a third; an element in the drapery fabric in a fourth.
It’s also extremely important to add one unexpected fun, splash of color into your basic color scheme. And by doing this, you instantly add visual interest into your design plan!
