Color Scheme #1: Monochromatic

Color Scheme #1: Monochromatic
The Raymour & Flanigan catalog suggests that this is the best look for a children’s bedroom. Different shades of pink create a whimsical, princess feel.

How to do it
Paint your main wall medium pink, think bubble gum, while deep fuchsia can be used in panels behind the bed. Then sprinkle lighter pink throughout the room. Raymour and Flanigan suggests you stick to a metal bed to create a focal point, and break up the room.

Perfect for a bedroom, the combination of pinks, greens, and yellow has a tropical feel—and could even have a manly man accepting this color scheme.

How to do it
Combine a purply-pink with green plants and a bedspread of greens, yellows, and golds. Raymour and Flanigan’s sample combination is tied together with a rich mahogany bed frame.

Pink, purple, and red are next to each other on the color wheel. Combining these colors makes for a dramatic look that’s good for a living room.

How to do it
“Wash away every other color and start with a blank canvas,” suggests Raymour & Flanigan. In the living room keep the couch and furniture neutral and light. Start with stunning wall art in these vibrant hues and toss pillows of different shades and textures on the couch.
