Many elements contribute to a color palette...Not only the hue on the walls, but how the color interacts with the ceiling, floor, and furnishings.It is important to consider not just each room, but the whole space as a series of connecting spaces. Remember to think of the sequence of color...glimpses of other rooms through doorways.


Repetition, repetition, repetition. Repeating a color is such a strong design element. It moves you through a space and creates a sense of flow.


Color is emotional. How will the space be used? Should it feel cool and relaxing...warm and cozy...lively and energetic?


Always consider the light. A direct southern exposure will allow the most flexibility in color choice. In cool northern light, the color will be more subdued. A dark color will not make a room dark...absence of light makes a room dark.
