Use them to create the bedrooms you’ve always wanted!

But first, understand the rule of colours.

Designers have a way of using colours in a room. They use the dominant colour in 60% of the space; 30% for the secondary colour; 10% for the accent colour. You can introduce a fourth colour but make it a secondary… not a highlighter.
