Dark, Warm Tones Define The Color Palette
In the traditional design, you’ll typically find neutral walls (it is predictable, after all), but color totally has a place. Art, textiles, and decor accents can help pop a room, and dark, rich jewel tones are most commonly used.
Think red, brown, green, and plenty of dark wood. “Palettes can be bold and saturated or pale and soft, but tend to be welcoming and not jarring or too graphic,” Gates says.
