Think about it, if everything is too similar, our eyes have trouble focusing and tend to glaze over. Use texture to make sure your most important elements pop. Restraint, of course, is also key, so try not to go too texture crazy. Stick to two or three distinct textures in any single space. Choose three when you want people to take in the space as a whole and stick to two when you want to emphasize a prominent focal point.
Think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white, it is just not as fierce. It is more welcoming to most people. Working within a streamlined color palette not only helps the rooms themselves feel cohesive, but it also helps with the transitions between rooms. When you are in the middle of the foyer and you are able to see all the other rooms throughout, you have the same family of colors repeated but in different ways in each space.
