What Should a Color Scheme Be?
There are so many colors to work with. Some look great on walls others on the floor and some on furniture. But how to make synchronization of the three. To begin with, don’t overwhelm yourself with this technical stuff anymore. Look around and learn from nature. In your garden, you must have different hues of flowers. Look at how nature has cast its shadow, what colors it chooses and what the different combinations look like. After this find out what looks soothing to your eyes.

To have a contemporary space, use soft color patterns on the walls and floors of the room.
Large windows that allow lots of natural light make sure that this room isn’t overwhelmed by it’s dark green hue. Try pairing rusty orange with a sage green to achieve a similar tribal vibe.

Not many homes are lucky enough to have a full wall backdrop of greenery, but those who are could try framing it in a similar fashion. To get the look, consider using neutrals and let mother nature add the color for you. The soft hues combined with the outside greenery give this space a fresh and revitalizing feel.
Which complement each other

White always runs the risk of feeling sterile and impersonal, but not in this living room. A sage green accent wall, glass coffee tables with warm wooden bases, orange throw pillows, and the high pile rug in this room strike the perfect balance of calm and stylish.
