A splendid white, such as Benjamin Moore’s Super White, helps keep a space feel open and unified. An accent wall in a low teal is a jumping-off indicate for a other colors in a room. Try Twilight by Benjamin Moore. A vast landscape portrayal over a lounge adds abyss and a focal indicate to a space, while gripping with a healthy theme. Repeat a rug’s solid settlement in a chairs and light tie in a dining area (not shown) to harmonize a space. Combine colors that seem to clash, such as teal, olive and emerald green, to give a room a some-more worldly look. Limit a series of pillows on a lounge to 4 to keep a room from feeling too bustling and dated. Mix textures, such as velvet, rattan, fur, timber and metal, to supplement visible and pleasing interest.
