Hot and cold
Thomas J. Story

Hot and cold

The canvas: A cool gray—this one has the smallest touch of blue—will look crisp in most lights and let other colors and artwork stand out. Avoid a purple undertone, though.

The mixer: The rug ties the key colors together (and adds kicky orange).

The coordinating pair: Hot yellow and dark teal are complementary colors, meaning they’re guaranteed to work together.

The glitz: Metallics, like the gold leaf on the fireplace, make almost any palette more dynamic.
