DIY Advice: The 60/30/10 Rule



The 60/30/10 Rule

  • What is the 60/30/10 rule?

A good rule of thumb on how to put your colours together in your space.

  • Why would you use this rule?

To harness the transformative power of paint to create interiors that are balanced and beautifully liveable.

  • How does it work?

60% is your dominant colour

30% is a secondary colour

10% is for accents

Translated into a room setting this would be:

60% of the room’s colours are the walls

30% would be the upholstery

10% would be accent pieces or floral arrangements.

When you are renovating an old space.

When you just want to redecorate.
