There is a simple rule in decor that states that 60% of the room is the main colour, 30% should be the secondary colour or texture and the last 10% should be an accent.
- The 60% includes large areas such as the walls, large area rugs and large furniture like sofas.
- The 30% includes draperies, accent chairs, bed linen or smaller pieces of furniture such as chairs and tables.
- The final 10% is an accent colour from throw pillows or small decor and artwork.
Look around your rooms and think about what portion of colours you want your window covers to be. We have linen and cotton blends as well as sheer fabrics that can blend into the primary colour. We can suggest complementing colors that can function and correspond with the secondary colour in your home. We also have a curated selection of bold colors that work wonderfully as an accent colour to bring in life into your rooms.
The rules are not rigid, but this helpful guide to segmenting out your living spaces can make it simple and easy to achieve a nice balance when decorating.
