Simple 60-30-10 Rule for Balance

Posted on March 04, 2018 by Kate Moynihan | 0 comments

Scoop up some success using a three-color palette! Notice how the painting of the ice cream sundae is two-scoops of blue (60%), one scoop of red ( 30%), and then a sprinkle of yellow! (10%)  What makes this art extra special is that it's done by my daughter-in-law, Lindsay Moynihan!

Try the 60-30-10 rule in decorating, too.

Choosing a three-color palette gives a balanced and appealing look by simply following this rule: Decorate 60% of the room with the dominant color (the blue in the photo above).Finish 30% of the room with the secondary color (the sienna warmth of bed, nightstand and chair). Use the third color as an accent in 10% of the space (the yellow accent pillow and lamp.)

The color wheel can help you create three colors that work well together. Click the link above to learn more.
