I (Cristina) was talking with a friend recently about the challenges of choosing a color palette when you’re sharing a space. Whether you’re cohabiting with friends, a significant other or your whole family, it can be quite the feat to design a space that will please everyone. My advice? When in doubt, choose blue. Forty percent of the world’s population does, when asked what their favorite color is (followed by purple with just 14 percent). And it’s not hard to believe — teal, indigo and turquoise are all serious contenders for my number one spot. So next time you find yourself in a design dispute with your roomie, consider shades of blue or purple for a palette that’s sure to be crowd-pleasing!
