Style Secret: Analagous Colors
Here's another lesson from the color wheel: Dress a space with analogous colors, which fall next to each other on the spectrum, rather than opposites. That might mean yellows and greens, reds and oranges, blues and purples. This space artfully marries swaths of turquoise, teal, sky and chartreuse into a cohesive whole.
Color your world: One secret to the success of the palette shown here is that the rich pigments are cut by bands of crisp white. This imbues the look with a more restful, less rambunctious feel. If you wanted to create a livelier atmosphere, however, you could skip the neutrals and just go all-out with bold hues.
