How to Keep the Colours of Your Rooms Simple
One of the easiest ways to ensure that you end up with a wonderful colour palette in our home is to stick to a monochromatic colour selection. For those who do not know monochromatic means that you use the same colour in varying intensities from light to dark. After all, nothing could be easier than sticking with one, instead of working with a range.
Some of the most used colours, when it comes to interior design, are grey, brown, and whites. You may not know it but there are hundreds of whites to choose from. Any of the neutral tones work really well in the monochromatic form, but my favourite is grey. Mainly, I think this is because it works so well with silver, nickel and stainless steel. Often people who are new to home interior design operate under the misconception that grey can have deadening effect on a room. However, as with white, there are many great and subtle variations in the colour grey. If you have considered working with grey along Feng Shui principles, then grey is described as having a crisp and clear energy but not one to be used in bedrooms. It is also a fantastic backdrop for virtually any other colour that you would like to introduce into your design. That is why so many magazine covers go with this approach.
