Using The 60-30-10 Design Rule

This design principle calls for 60% of a room being the dominant color, 30% as the secondary color, and 10% as the accent color. Transcend, Big Cypress and Misty Aqua pair well with greenery, blonde or natural brown-toned woods, and layers of texture in the form of rattan, linen, velvet and woven textiles like pillows, blankets and rugs. With mindfulness front and center, this nurturing paint color palette allows consumers to make space for comfort, support, relief and joy.
