5 Color Combinations That Deliver on Bold DecorPosted on: June 23rd, 2017
Color can be a difficult design tool. Although most people enjoy bright hues, they can be a little daunting when it comes to adding them to your home. A bold color combination might seem like too much of a commitment, or you may be worried you are choosing the wrong pairs. If you are ready to bring some bold décor into your home, here is some design inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.
Purple and Red
This bold color combination is not for the faint of heart. There are a lot of shades on the purple spectrum, and the red can be used as the accent color in accessories such as vases, wall hangings or pillows. Purple is the color of royalty, so it is a great choice for living rooms and guest bedrooms. Mother Nature is a good source of décor inspiration for selecting your purple and red combos.
Teal and Coral
Nothing says summertime like teal and coral, but the combo can be used year-round as well. Teal can be toned down to aqua, but if you like bold décor, don’t be afraid to go with the fully saturated hue. Furniture in this shade makes a definite statement, and because both these colors are enjoying a moment in the spotlight, it is not difficult to find furniture and accessories that include them.
Black and White
This combination may not seem particularly outside-the-box, but it is the perfect color combination to serve as a backdrop for bold décor. It’s also super easy to switch out pillows, side chairs and curtains for a whole new look every season if you have a black and white canvas to work with. Look for unexpected accoutrements that will serve as a focal point in your black-and-white space.
Hot Pink and Yellow
Now we are talking about bold choices! If you live in a place that is sunny year-round or you just like bright hues, this combo is ideal. Start with some great drapes for décor inspiration and then design the rest of the room around them. Choose an accent chair with a bold floral pattern and some wall art that pops, and you are already halfway done!
Mint Green and Lavender
Mint green has been popular for about a year, and it shows no sign of slowing. Mixing it with lovely lavender is a great color combination to make use of the trend without going overboard. Select a soft mint shade for the walls and then add lavender in the furniture and accessories.
These five combos are perfect for anyone who’s looking for décor inspiration for their home. Don’t be afraid to make bold décor choices!
