DIVERSIFY YOUR HUE
It's a common pitfall. You want a blue (or green or yellow or red) room and you think the answer is paint.
But alas, a room is not built on paint alone. A room with one color is like a song with one note – flat.
It takes layers of colors, textures, fabrics and finishes to really make a room "sing". The dining room
below from Bunny Williams is a beautiful example. The star of this room is a dramatic cerulean blue, but
it's the supporting shades of green, yellow, gold and cream that make it pop. Moreover, the designer
chose checked slipcovers, a large 18th century framed wallpaper panel and a collection of Chinese
porcelain to bring this shade of blue to life. So take Bunny's cue and diversify your hue!
