One color family keeps home decorating scheme unified

Limiting a home's wall colors to only a few selections will help unify the look throughout the house.

By relying on one color family, home decorators can create a unified color scheme planned throughout their homes, rather than on a room-by-room basis.

Limiting the color palette to no more than four colors should also apply to fabrics, rugs and window treatments. Those colors, or shades of them, can be repeated in different rooms, but in a unique way in each space.

According to Hamptons.com, the chosen colors can be unified with the same color for molding and trim throughout the home, but a wall color in one room can be the ceiling color elsewhere. In addition, the hallways should be painted the same neutral to tie different areas together. Ceilings can be done in a pale shade of the wall color used in a room.

To coordinate window coverings with wall colors, home decorators can keep them monochromatic so the colors from walls to windows flow without visual interruption. Or they can create a focal point by using window treatments that contrast with walls.

Soft sheer shades would work in a monochromatic scheme of off-whites and the beige family. For contrast, faux wood blinds are a good choice because of the availability of colors and finishes they provide.
