You know, the one that says if you use a colour once in your room, you should use it at least three times?
Do any of you do this? And how?
And then there's this: I've been reading a stack of decorating books lately and there's this concept called "flow." Basically it's taking this "rule of three" and applying it to every room--so if the living room is brown (BM decatur buff, let's say ;) and the dining room oh, let's pick BM raspeberry truffle, (a gorgeous red) and the kitchen (a Martha Stewart palette of green and yellow, for example) --how on EARTH do you introduce these other colours into each room?
For example, the living room "needs" shots of yellow and red.
The dining room "needs" dollops of brown and yellow
and the kitchen "needs" brown and red. (blech). (And a different yellow).
I'm beginning to understand why professional's advise us to "stick with neutrals"--I'm getting dizzy just thinking about it, lol!
And suggestions? The only thing that is permanent and can't be painted is my couch. (a green that just blends into the walls of the decatur buff which is why I picked it, lol!)
