Picking out colors that work harmoniously together can be very tricky—after all, color can make or break the space. This is probably the reason why most homeowners decide to stick to black and white.

No need to worry, even if matching colors isn’t your strongest suit or you’re just fickle-minded with tints, you can still play with them with tone-on-tone coloring. This styling technique, more commonly known as layering, uses different shades of the same hue to add depth into a room. Curious? Here are a few ideas you can try: 

For a lush look, consider a rich color like green that works with both classic and contemporary backgrounds. Use deeper colors for furniture and lighter tints for accessories to balance out the look.

Yellow is considered to be one of the happiest colors in the spectrum. Liven up your dining area with paint-dipped stools and decor pieces that are borderline lime to prevent the room from looking too bright. 

If you're looking for something more subtle, gray is your best bet. Aside from mixing a variety of shadow tones, feel free to inject hints of cream and beige so the room doesn't fall flat and dull. 

If you're into luxurious, jewel tones, purple exudes effortless elegance that will make your bedroom look like a five-star hotel suite. Add a few pieces in rose gold or copper for that extra sparkle! 

Cool, calming and easy on the eyes—it's impossible to go wrong with blue. Since it can be considered a neutral, you're not limited to experiment with tones, you can also try adding textures to your space through wallpaper, throws or pillows.
