Change begins when the key elements of interior designing are being implemented rightly on the project. As designing has got a lot to do with creating illusions, the first step to be worked on is the size of the rooms.

Whereas, if the darker color palette is being used in a small room, it creates a feeling of crampedness and on the other hand, a large room will look perfectly balanced with the right flow of colors from the tints to the shades! (Tints are basically created by the blending of color white to create the lightness whereas shades are created by blending of the color black, to create just the opposite effect.)
