Coordination is an easy concept in fashion. The purse complements the dress, which is highlighted by the shoes. The total effect is greater than the sum of the parts. The same thing is true in designing space. You start with a color or palette. Then you accessorize.
In our world, that means you can coordinate flooring with finishing borders (wall base), stair treads and accessories. But it also means you can use color to coordinate the flow and function of a space. You might choose linoleum in one room and then use a coordinating rubber tile or vinyl sheet in the next.
Our color system lets each part of a space talk to the next through colors that coordinate and connect across material, texture and pattern.
