Winter's Reprieve

A classic but fresh fabric is the starting point for this bright color scheme. Cheery blue, orange, and hot pink are an antidote to a dull room.

Designer: Lauren McGrath

Getting Started:

Use a ratio formula to help you put together a color scheme. Choose one main color to serve as 40-60 percent of your color palette, then one to two supporting colors to comprise 30-40 percent of your color palette, and fill the remainder with one to two accents. Thinking of color this way can help you determine how much of each color to use. Go to the next slide to see how this scheme breaks out.
