The color palette of a space is made up of neutral colors and accent colors a great way to start planning.
Your color palette is by selecting neutrals, which will be the backdrop and base for your space. The chromatic content is low in a neutral color, so they are neither activated nor come in a room. They act as a canvas to showcase other design. Elements with a neutral wall or opportunities are endless.

For example, in minimalist or scandinavian style, you can use light neutral colors as a base and use black or dark gray as an accent.
Although this is a monochrome palette, the contrast between black and white is so high that it does a function to accentuate something, especially in the space. On the other hand, if you seek to add color to your home, having answered the questions that we saw at the beginning of this video, you will already know what colors are suitable for your space.
