Fresh Color Combinations

Interior Decorator, Caitlin Creer shares six fresh color combinations that will elevate any room in your home.

The key these days is a good dose of something unexpected. You can have a relatively neutral room, but still incorporate a dose of color and make it sing. Try thinking outside the box when you’re considering color combinations for a space. You might be surprised how something daring can really elevate a room.

Green + Blue:

Fresh preppy and crisp. A true kelly green will play it safe, but if you’re feeling bold, try pairing a limey shade of chartreuse in the mix.

Yellow + Green:

Young and fresh. More muted tones can create a very warm and earthy look. Bright ones scream happy and fun.

Orange +Blue:

This combo is not for the faint of heart, but it can create a vibrant feeling in a room. For a more traditional look, try using varying shades of blue paired with a subtle orange or red. This match would be darling for a boy’s room.

Pink + Green:

Cute and fun. Be careful not to take this over the top or your room might start looking like a Barbie commercial. Both these shades have a wide color range that can be adapted to suit the needs of the space. This combo can be fun or sophisticated depending what tones your use in your space.

Robin’s egg + Red:

Classic and cool. The doses of each color will determine the impact, so this is a great option if you want to go a little subtler.

Yellow + Gray:
In case you haven’t heard, gray is hot these days.
A yellow takes it to a masculine and vibrant place.
