Pick Two Colors

One easy rule of thumb when choosing a theme for a room is to stick to two colors that go well together. You can certainly add things to the room that don’t feature the main colors, but having an obvious color scheme makes it easy to create a room and let you put a personal touch to your home.

Know the Room

Every room in your house has a purpose. A room should be more than functional, making you feel something every time you enter. To do this you need to use furnishings that not only match a specific theme, but also serve a specific purpose in the room.
