If you want to bring the 2020 Color of the Year into your home, make sure you follow these 3 basic, yet essential steps to ensure you have the most stylish home in town!
Step 1: Use the 60-30-10 Rule
When introducing Classic Blue, or any other color scheme into your home, be sure to use the 60-30-10 Rule. To do this, mentally divide a particular room into 3 different percentage categories. 60% should be a dominant color, 30% should be a secondary color and 10% should be the accent color.
Some throw pillows, a vase or a great piece of art in Classic Blue will give a room that 10% pop of accent color that you need!
Step 2: Create Flow
To create the best look in your home, make sure your Classic Blue décor “flows” from one room to the next. Avoid using the same exact objects in each room, instead create an interesting visual experience with a mix of items, materials, and fabrics from one room to the next.
Step 3: Don’t Play It Too Safe
Go for that Classic Blue accent wall or couch! Sure, it’s less practical, but if you’ve always fantasized about it, do it! Life is short… Letting your home be too boring is the biggest mistake of all.
