Color Limit

You can create a successful color palette for a space with anywhere from one to five colors. But limiting the number of colors doesn't mean you have to limit the range of values (tints or shades) of each of those colors within a room. You could use even more colors, but you need to be aware that the more colors used within a space, the busier it can feel, which in turn can make it feel smaller.
