Tone-on-tone Color Combinations

This involves combining a dark or a mid-tone hue with a light hue in the same color family. The tone-on-tone color combination is ideal for spaces that you would like to keep it simple, but interesting.

That can be your living room, study, or foyer. For instance, you can use the striking Manish Malhotra red on your main wall alongside light fresh pinks on the adjacent walls. This creates a stunning focus on the space.
