Start by working from a color wheel. There are primary, secondary and tertiary colors. Primary colors are red, blue and yellow. They are pure colors and cannot be created. Secondary colors are orange, green and purple. These colors are formed when equal parts of 2 primary colors are combined. For example equal parts yellow and blue make green. As basic as this is this is where we begin the color selection. Tertiary colors are a mixture, in varying parts of secondary and primary colors to create different hues, as a result the primary and secondary colors become less vivid. White and black are often added to darken and soften these hues.
We will caution against selecting your wall color first. Wall paints are inexpensive and can be created in any color and in any hue you desire. It’s best to start with harder to find items such as furniture and rugs or carpets. Once you’ve selected your furnishings you can then move on to wall color. You may decide that you’d prefer your color not to be on your walls, but in your accessories or furnishings instead. Many people prefer this. Others, conversely, prefer more neutral furnishings contrasted by bold and powerful walls.
