Story Ideas: Creating a Color Scheme for a Whole House

Picking a color for just one room in a home can be difficult, so choosing colors for an entire house can be overwhelming. Figuring out how to coordinate colors in the kitchen with the colors in the living room – not to mention the colors in the bedroom! – requires some effort. Experts recommend when choosing a palette to start with three colors – one neutral and two other tones. Make sure to use the neutral tone in every room and accent with the other two colors. From there it is easier to insert additional colors while maintaining a coordinated look.
