If you just moved in and you have the op­por­tu­nity to start anew, work­ing with a blank can­vas, the world is your oys­ter. If, on the other hand, you are work­ing with what you’ve al­ready got, you’ll need to be mind­ful of other dom­i­nant colours in the room. There’s noth­ing wrong with clash­ing, and it’s never that in­ter­est­ing when things match to per­fec­tion, but you want to avoid any­thing that will be par­tic­u­larly jar­ring. E.g. if you al­ready have lots of vi­brant colour in your soft fur­nish­ings — and per­haps a state­ment coloured sofa — are you best off keep­ing your wall prints muted? Try to avoid hav­ing ev­ery­thing com­pet­ing for dom­i­nance in the one space. Or, if your room is al­ready pared back as is, you can af­ford to go bolder with your wall art. Hav­ing an ac­cent colour in mind will nar­row your search.
