4. A triple threatIf you think it takes a bold personality to decorate a room in one colour, image what it takes to use three colours!WHERE? You would be hard-pressed to find a room that utilises three different colours and doesn’t have a “fun” overtone, which means that you should generally stick to the casual rooms when trying a trio.HOW? The key to bringing a trio of colours into one room is to make sure that all three shades are from the same colour family. Here is an easy way to put together a colour family. Take one primary shade, such as red. Then add the two colours that are made when your primary colour, red, is mixed with the two other primary colours. In this case, that means red, plus purple (red mixed with blue) and orange (red mixed with yellow). Play with variants on the shades and you’ll see it works every time.
