DEC­O­RAT­ING WITH COLOR

Real Living (Philippines) - - Real Homes -

mix­ing and match­ing col­ors can be daunt­ing. take a few tricks from laureen’s home on how to make it work.

For a bold look, com­bine com­pli­men­tary col­ors. th­ese are the ones that are di­rectly across from each other in the color wheel; for ex­am­ple, green and red or blue and orange. For a more ca­sual look, use an anal­o­gous color scheme―com­bine col­ors ad­ja­cent to each other with col­ors that are on the op­po­site side of the wheel; for ex­am­ple, hues of blue and green with hues of red and yel­low.

use your wall color to bring all the col­ors of a room to­gether. the col­ors of your fur­ni­ture should set the tone; small ac­ces­sories, such as a throw or a teapot, should pro­vide pops of bold col­ors.
