Case in point, the walls of the breakfast room are coated with a similar blue to the family room, but this time with paint, and as in the entryway, a pop of orange upholstery has a striking yet grounding effect. A genius way to get even more mileage out of a small group of colors is to do a flip flop of sorts, pushing what was previously used as an accent color to the foreground.
You want the color that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else. You can pick that color only if your stuff is actually inside your home. Give your furniture some breathing room. Resist overcrowding a room. Gracious living means space to maneuver with ease. This is really great news if you are working with a tight budget.
Link red to passion because red is the color we exhibit on our skin when interested, a red flush or blush. Rather than having your outfit scream kitten, unless that is what you are going for, the best way to rock this passion producing color and get into a frame of mind is by carrying a red clutch, donning a bright red polish on your nails, try Essie Well Red, or lining your lips in the right red.
Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline or center of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. The average human eye level is 57 inches. And you should do the same. In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember, it needs to relate to human scale, not the structures scale.
