Instead of using colors in their true forms, experiment with their different shades. Try pairing sunshine yellow with teal for an unexpected twist in your room.
Pair a primary color with a neutral shade
Red, blue, and yellow are primary colors that usually come in strong shades. Soften the look by pairing it with a soft brown neutral. You may opt for a neutral colored curtain or couch.
Opt for textures in complementary shades
Instead of going for solid blocks of color in a room, try to inject patterns in shades like purple or orange. Striped curtains give balance to your room’s colors.
Stick with one hue

Go for white
Always remember that neutral shades like white keep color schemes grounded. It can also make your color scheme versatile. For example, try pairing dark shades like gray or black with white for a sophisticated touch or brown with white for a natural feel.
