Yes, the house was something ... actually a journey for me in understanding how others perceive colorI like your ideaLarge colours splotcheson scarves is a great idea to use complentary colours.
This idea about smaller multi colour patterns from afar blended makes me think that if I were to buy a smaller pattern design again I should go for a more monochromatic multi coloured? What would be an ideal colour combo for smaller designs?
The home you owned. I’m sorry the visual you have described is hilarious! I’m surprised the former owners never noticed...
The previous owner loved green - she used the stuff all over and it never dawned on her that the greens did not go together AT ALL
A tiurquoisy teal green marbly countertop
The door and shutters were painted inky inky dark green nearly black - ugly
Bath was pastel mint with a blue green marble floor tile
To her , it all went together ... OK... she perceived color differently than me, to me it all clashed, lesson learned
