Using the 60-30-10 Rule to Purchase Pillows
Choosing a color scheme for your home is a big decision. Colors will change the entire feel for your living environment, and it is important that you choose colors that work well together. But have no fear - there are easy ways to ensure your home is color-coordinated to your heart's content.
Selecting the Right Colors
There are various ways you can be inspired to select a color scheme. One option is to pull from the largest pattern in the space. For example, if you have a large oriental rug - find a color that corresponds with the upholstery. Other options include studying the color of your clothes, utilizing a color wheel, or going with the architecture of your home. Whatever you decide to do, make sure the colors match with your personal style.
What Is The 60-30-10 Rule?
I thought you'd never ask! The 60-30-10 rule is a common concept used by interior design professionals. If you want to decorate like a pro, implement this rule while decorating your home. The rule suggests separating a space into components of 60 percent of a dominant color, 30 percent of a secondary color, and 10 percent of an accent color. This will help create a balance of color throughout your space, giving it a clean and professional appearance. Here is a breakdown of what makes up the percentages:
- Dominant Color: This color is typically a neutral color that will be used as the primary color in the room. Most often, the dominant color will be used to paint the walls. Choosing a bold color will make a room overwhelming - so stick to neutral colors if possible.
- Secondary Color: Your secondary color does not have to be neutral, but it shouldn't be extremely vibrant either. The color can be used in furniture, carpets, or other large decorations throughout the space. Be sure this color corresponds with your dominant choice.
- Accent Color: The accent only accounts for 10 percent of the color in your room - so go bold. This can include pillows, lamps, art, and other decorative accessories.
Using This Concept to Purchase Pillows
After selecting a color palette using the 60-30-10 rule, you can start purchasing accessories. When purchasing pillows or other accent pieces, look to the components that encompass your secondary color such as furniture or carpets. Select accessories that match a color in your secondary pieces, and there you have your accent color.
