You may think that choosing color palette for house is an easy thing to do. Perhaps you think that having a good taste is enough to pick the perfect color scheme. This is not the case, as matching decoration is not easy as it may appear. Many people may easily commit many mistakes when they select home color scheme. Here are 5 common mistakes people usually make when they match colors in the house, so you can avoid them: 

1-Not selecting a dominant color: It is true that matching furniture’s colors with accessories is not an easy thing. But be careful of falling into the trap of selecting a lot of colors, so that one cannot determine what is the dominant color in the room or that colors are not matching with each other. 

2-Not sticking to the rule 60/30/10: You may have been to places in which the place is decorated with 2 colors or with too many colors. To precisely choose color scheme, use the rule 60\30\10. This rule means you have to select 3 colors for one room and use them in certain proportions: 60% for the dominant hue, 30% for the secondary color, and 10% for the accent color. This formula works like a magic. If you stick to it, you will get a good result that will get you a lot of compliments.  

3-Overlooking the lighting: Perhaps you bought a piece of furniture and you got shocked when you brought it home because it looked differently. This is one of the common mistakes that people make when decorating. When you pick a color, you have to think about how it will look like with the lighting. Also, you should pay attention to how the color would look like throughout the day as the daylight changes. 

4- Not noticing the impact of neutral colors: Neutral colors, such as beige, are necessary to create a balance between cold and warm colors. Yet, shadows that neutral colors create are not neutral. Thus, before considering neutral colors, you have to fully understand the impact that they have on the decoration. 

5- Using too many colors: A lot of people enjoy having colorful items. Because they are joyful and they bring vitality to the decor. At the same time, using too many colors in decoration might be disastrous. So, when you choose color scheme, make sure to select the colors that match or complement each other. Do not forget to apply the rule 60\30\10.
