You can archive this the following two ways:
- By either using 3 different colors like. … One primary color for walls, another for bigger accents such as sofas and the 3rd color in accessories and decoration.
- Another option is to go “monochromatic” here you use 3 different shades of one color. For example, I mix 5 Gal of White Color with 1, 2 or 3 parts (quarts) of Gray.
Tip: Always get a small color sample and try it your room. So you can “test drive” your color during different times & lights of the day.
