The color scheme sets the mood and atmosphere in the room. But it is also a design solution that prompts the future home decor. Choosing a color scheme can be difficult. There are so many hues and combinations. But once the paint is chosen and walls are painted there is still some work and decoration to do in order to add depth to the chosen color scheme and add character to it.

Adding Accents

Even if you chose a classic black and white color scheme it can be made more interesting with some bright and color accents like in the picture above. Black and white can also withstand more than one bright color as well as color blocking. Add color in throw pillows, furniture pieces, vases, accessories and other various home decorations.

    I have a problem. I have curtains in my living room that are somewhere between a teal and slate blue. I don’t know what color to paint my walls. My furniture is very neutral – being and browns. Can you please help?

    Hey, Elaine,

    I think if curtains are a bright then the walls can be more neutral and pastel. The teal or contrasting accents in accessories will tie the whole look together. But then again, it’s my dilettante opinion. Try google-ing ‘teal curtains’, it gives out many options and solutions.
