Creating a Visually Pleasing Interior - The 60/30/10 Rule

Satara Sales - Tuesday, June 19, 2018

One of the most satisfying areas of an Interior Stylist’s role, is helping homeowners prepare their homes for sale. The brief is simple; to create a visually pleasing interior to increase the appeal of the property to potential buyers. Homeowners are often so impressed with the finished product they’re left asking why they didn’t think to employ a professional stylist for themselves sooner.

To make the most of your home just follow a few simple decorating rules and you won’t be in a hurry to leave your comfy nest anytime soon.

Have you ever walked through a home where every room features a different colour, and by the time you walk through the entire home you feel like you’ve visited the circus? Individuality in rooms doesn’t have to be as dramatic as featuring a different colour, in fact choosing a coordinating palette of colours for the entire home at one time will help rooms flow visually and won’t feel so jarring.

The 60/30/10 rule states that a well decorated space should consist of 3 different colours; A dominant colour which should cover around 60% i.e. walls, flooring etc. Start with a paler more neutral base. A secondary colour which takes up around 30% of the space and is usually used for furniture and finally a bolder accent colour at 10% used in smaller décor items.
