The color choice in the dining room started with a photo of a peacock. The cyan blue accent walls were created to transport dinner guests to a vacation state of mind. “As you take in the magnificent views, the manmade color story of CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) provides a lively backdrop to the serene, nature-made color story of the surrounding countryside,” Christen says.Max dining table: B&B Italia; chairs: Ligne-Roset; Lugano sideboard: BoConcept

This photo represents gradation because a rhythm is created by a gradual change in color.

This is an example of gradation because of the wall. The wall goes from white to light blue then a slightly darker blue and so on then goes back down from dark blue to lighter blue to lighter blue then white.

This room is an example of gradation. Gradation is the flow of colors which is what the walls are doing, The walls are moving from a bright blue to a soft blue then to white.
