Start decorating in the main room of your home, e.g your living room.
Look around your room for a large item with at least 3 colors. The large item could be a large piece of art, rug, sofa, or drapes.
If you do not have a large item with at least 3 colors, you will need to get one.
Select 3 colors in your large item that will become the color scheme of that room.
For example, it could be a green, burgundy, and gold rug. Neutral colors such as black, white, grey, or beige do not work as well. Select the colors that appeal to you most.
Each of the 3 colors in your large item should be incorporated evenly around your room in at least 3 places.
You could have decorative gold pillows, a gold candlestick with a burgundy candle, and gold walls with burgundy and green books sitting on an end table, burgundy drapes, a green plant, and a green platter.
accessorize with whatever items you find appealing.
