60-30-10 Rule

These numbers applies to the idea that your room has three colours which share 60%, 30% and 10% of the space. 60% is the main colour which can be the colour of your walls, curtains, rugs and may be sofa. This colour serves as the backdrop for choosing the next colour. 30% is the colour contrasting to the previous one and can be incorporated in the upholstery. This colour adds interest to the area. Now comes the 10% of the colour which is an accent colour. Throw pillows, colourful candles on the stand, artwork and the decorative elements are the best way to showcase the 10% colour.

Colour wheel (which shows relationship between colours) is the great tool to choose the three colours. Another trick is to pick colours from the fabric you might have chosen for the draperies. A particular look and feel can be created using different combination of colours.


However, one can break this rule using different ratio of preferred colours. Every combination is great till it pleases your eyes.



Monochromatic Scheme!

This colour scheme uses the tones and shades of the same colour to create a sense of differentiation. It is a great way to decorate small spaces as it renders an illusion of larger surface area. Here is an example of a bed room which is embellished in the tones and shades of blu colour, the final outcome is a relaxed area without overwhelming a particular colour.





110 Percent Rule

110 percent breaks up into 60% for the main colour, 40% for the secondary colour and 10% for two accent colours each. So, give an extra boost to your room by adding another throw pillows or decorating items having the accent colour of your likings.

Don’t hesitate to create your own decorating formula. One should always be experimenting with more and more colour combinations while making sure that there is always an equilibrium of colours. Colours should be in harmony with each other. For example, if one opts for bright yellow, magenta and parrot green colours for one’s room, the space would put a strain on the eyes of a beholder. It tends to create tension in the area rather than creating a relaxing ambience to sit around. On other side, the combination of lighter shades of yellow, magenta and olive green (instead of parrot green), clubbed with white would give a sense of liveliness to the room while adding warmth to it.

Colour Psychology


It is very good to understand the colour psychology before finalising any colour scheme.

Let's take a look at the colour themes executed by Team LakkadWorks.


Here's a glimpse of 3 D renders of living room, created for one of our client. As per the client's requirement, the ambience has been designed in such a way that neither it looks very dull nor too bright. Balanced blend of white, sandy brown and aqua colour renders a relaxing & organic look. The magenta flowers at the table add an accent colour to the scheme by uplifting the mood. At the same time, the peripheral lighting around the TV panel adds contemporary feel to the living room. Last but not the least, it's always lovable to welcome ample amount of sunlight to your room.
