Color is one of those subjective things. People have different ideas about it. There are certain rules which are widely followed but even those are subjective. This provides three of those rules so you can follow them if you wish to. It helps you avoid making mistakes if you care about that.
- No matter what anyone says, white is always an option.
- To prevent one color from overpowering the other, keep them within the same range of brightness — the color combinations shouldn’t be too much lighter or darker than their counterparts.
- When selecting a color, don’t just consider how your furniture will look with it — consider how light and space will affect it, too.
