There are many “rules” when it comes to designing an interior space. We are not saying that we should always apply these rules to an interior space. Of course there will be exceptions.
Personally, we find the most important rule to be the 60-30-10 rule. What does it mean? Your space should contain 60% of your dominant colour choice, 30% secondary colour choice, and 10% of an accent colour.
In this project, the 60% dominant colour is actually the Ash colour that is very strong within the entire house. We made use of the existing floor hue, and picked a similar laminate texture & colour which, at the same time, must be coherent with the general concept of the space.
Next, the 30% secondary colour of choice was a textured grey laminate. We chose grey because we wanted to add a touch of modern look into the space. The dining table & set are of similar hue to the laminate picked.
The 10% of accent colour we chose is actually a bright yellow / gold hue. We wanted it to compliment the 60% dominant colour, at the same time it stands out as an accent colour. Also the gold adds a sens of luxury into the space.
