I have students all the time ask me how do I come up with my color schemes.  What colors go with other colors .  For me it is as basic as looking at fabric, wallpaper, or magazines etc.  Sometimes just looking at a color wheel doesn’t quite cut it.  Take a look below at some of the examples I pulled together.  If you notice, in most articles, they will have listed a color pallet and then styled accessories and fabrics in the other pictures like below. In other photo, are colors like the color pallet above.  All of these examples are from the  Grandinroad August 2014 catalogue.  Great magazine I might add.
