Colors should be thoughtfully chosen and carefully placed because they also interact and work together to create an overall color scheme for your home. Once you have the right combination of colors to achieve a beautiful whole-home palette, the next step is to mindfully combine and order them in a way that will create a nice flow from one space to the next.
