Are you having a difficult time matching the colors of various pieces in your room’s color scheme?

Here’s a great design tip… coordinate colors instead of matching.

This allows you the freedom to easily incorporate other pieces into your room’s color scheme. It also makes your life easier by not having to be so match-y, match-y. By doing so, you’ll have more fun combining exciting pieces for a well-designed look.

Design Tip: Coordinate Colors instead of MatchingSo, how do you determine what items coordinate and what items don’t?

A good rule of thumb is to look at all the pieces in question individually and together as a whole. Do you find the items pleasing grouped together or do they distract from each other? If they distract, then it’s best to try a different grouping.

Coordinate instead of match

But what if you don’t trust your own taste in color and detail? Seek out a professional opinion. Someone you trust, whose work you have seen, and who has a design preference you admire.

This method of “coordinating not matching” is especially helpful when you’re working with a pattern that may take on one general color when viewed from a distance. Take a close look at each patterned piece to see which colors stand out.
