How to decorate a room with lots of colors Avoid primary colors. Using only primary colors (basic red, blue, and yellow) can look juvenile. They have some dominant colors. While some colors go well naturally, others can clash terribly.
So how do you know which ones to incorporate into your space? Shannon recommends knowing the color wheel when combining colors. You can also choose colors on either side of the main color and work with the tones of that color. For example, blue and green or orange and yellow always work well together. This approach creates a serene and relaxing interior.
