Fabulous Interior Color Combos

One of the best ways to start dressing a room is to choose a color combination. There are countless beautiful combos out there, but right now these are the three that I’m loving the most:

1. Grays + Greens: Emerald, grass, jade … you name it! Green and gray look fantastic together.
 These emerald curtains are a beautiful contrast from the subtle gray walls. And the pop of gold in the chandelier? Amazing.
The grass green of these curtains blends perfectly with the nature-themed interior. This person stuck to a simple color palate of white and gray and accented it with just the right amount of color.
This living room, on the other hand, has a darker color palate and the bright green really breathes some life into the space. With just two pieces of furniture and an art piece, the dull colors really dance.

2. Blue on Blue: This sounds a little crazy, but blue on blue -- if done right -- can be utterly stunning. Observe:
The dark blue walls with the lighter blue chairs and pictures on the wall really give the room depth, while the green accents provide your eyes with non-blue objects to admire.
This cool, calm room just exudes relaxation vibes.
Okay this might be a little extreme, but it’s cool, right? The blue against the gold looks majestic and inviting. Imagine if the room was all red or brown – not quite as cozy. This is the epitome of blue on blue and they’re killing it.

3. Monochrome: You got a little taste of monochrome in the above picture, but these cream, gray and beige monochromatic rooms are just delightful. When you stick with such a subtle color you’ve really got to play up the textures, depths and fabrics. This is a great color scheme for the bedroom, as it’s calm and ensures rest and relaxation! Take a look at these and note the textures:
Greens, blues, grays and beiges are great colors to toy around with. And don’t be afraid to try the color-on-color concept!
