When choosing colors, you really only need 2-3 colors for your whole home.  By repeating those colors throughout your home, in different ways and intensities, your color palette will repeat throughout your home and create flow.  Repeating other design elements - such as wood tones or architectural elements - only adds to that whole wonderful 'pulled together' feel.

Repetition..... ITS A GOOD THING :)
