Interiors: The deep colour Palette

A deep colour palette says bold is beautiful. Rich reds, deep blues, emerald greens, burgundy, indigo and terracotta are common hues. Walls should be in warm shades such as buttery yellow, mango orange or pale earth tones. Distressed surfaces and antique finishes add a regal, timeworn touch. Leave those petal pinks and baby blues behind. If you want pink, lean toward fuchsia, and make it less flowery by grounding it with orange or accenting it with gold.
