The true secret to creating a palette is to start with a color you love and then find it some friends. Or, you can emphasize one pop of color in the space and repeat it throughout the room. Another way to go is to work with shades of a color you love - like varying shades of blue. No matter the scenario, work to create a sense of balance. For example, balance a strong wall color with something lighter underfoot.
