Recently I stayed with friend and fellow interior designer Michelle Nettles, as I headed to High Point, North Carolina for Market Week. Michelle, like me, has a love of color and recently updated her guest room. I loved what she did with the room and considered moving in.
Michelle used the 80/20 rule when decorating her guest room. 80 percent of the room was done in neutral while 20 percent was in color. This creates a nice balance in the space. The pillows also followed the 80/20 rule with a great mix of neutrals, orange spice and hot pink. Loved the use of scale and pattern – organic and geometric.
Remember the 80/20 rule next time you decide to mix color into your space.
