5 Tips for decorating with spring color palettes – Tip 4:

Try to vary the amount you’re using of each color.  Like in the above tip, just using a little bit of the bold color in small accents.  Or using the neutral colors much more, like on your walls or on a big piece of furniture like a sofa or bed. You can use the "60-30-10 Rule", which means your main color throughout the space should be used 60% of the time (this is great for neutral or light colors on walls, rugs, furniture, etc.  Then in 30% of your decor you should use a secondary color, this can be a bolder color than your neutral, but you want to make sure this color still is not too overwhelming.  This is perfect for an accent wall, an accent chair, area rug, etc.  And finally 10% of your decor should be your third color or accent color.  This is great for throw pillows, throw blankets, florals, artwork and other accessories.  This just adds a nice pop to the composition and rounds out your space.  You don't have to follow this rule, but it's a great starting point to achieve balance and proportion in your space.
