A key rule of thumb for maintaining a balanced colour scheme is the trusted interior design equation: 60-30-10.
Here’s how it goes… 60% of your room should be the dominant colour (generally the wall colour). The next 30% should represent a secondary colour—accent walls, a painted bookcase or furniture such as a large-scale sofa. The remaining 10% of the colour scheme should be accents like art and accessories. And voila! You have a perfectly balanced room. (See, we told you weren’t your average painters!)
