Living Spaces in 12 Tones


In this series, I’m collecting my Pinterest boards into blog posts to help you see how the tones can be used in various applications. I find it really useful to see all 12 tones together, because it helps me to understand my own tone to see it in the context of all the others.

Keep in mind that screens render colour differently (sometimes radically differently), so while these images look harmonious with their respective tones on my screen, they may not on yours. Always use your fan as your guide. 


I’ve collected these images to show how the colours of the 12 tones appear can be used to design beautiful living spaces.

You certainly don’t need to decorate your home with your own colours, and that’s often not feasible given that more than one person usually lives in a house! 

However, a harmoniously-coloured environment is always more enjoyable and less stressful to be in than a disharmonious one.

Choosing a tone to decorate your home (or a room in your home) creates a beautiful, harmonious space, as you can see in the examples below.
