DECORATING WITH COLOR
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.
