5 Top Colour Combinations

We’ve chosen five rooms with colour combinations that we think really work.

From subtle combinations to brighter pops of colour. Take a look at colours that you wouldn’t normally think to put together and the classic combinations.

This mix match of warm hues works well in this dining area. The neutral colours of the wall, floor and table allow the chairs to pop and not over power.

image2

Greens and blues are a winning combination. Having the green elements as plants and artwork it is a fresh and brightening way of combining the colours.

This pallet of deep blues and greys is a classic and smart look. The spot of yellow in the carpet and the mustard sofa bring this room away from being too dark. This is a great example of the use of colour to lighten a room.

This is a classic colour combination. The natural colours with the light wooden flooring and the bare brickwork is brought to life with the hints of yellow.

These brighter colours work so well together. The pop colours paired with the graphic artwork and the mid-century modern furniture make this into a current yet retro fun room.

Our Current Top 5 Interior Colour Combinations

We’ve chosen five rooms with colour combinations that we think really work.

From greens and yellows to neutrals and neons, hopefully these will give you an idea of the different variations of colour combinations that work.

colour combo1

Blue, green, yellow and neutral. Bright and fresh colours that go great. The colour that works well here is the green of the wall, it is the statement colour (but its not too overpowering), the yellows and soft pinks work as accents to the green.

Colour combo2

The greys and pink of the walls are mirrored by the pink chair and wooden furniture in this room. A bright and fresh colour combination that is all drawn together by the reflective copper lights shades.

Colour Combo3

This is a current colour combination that we’re looking at for our own room. With a red and white egg chair we need a neutral colour that will give us a mid century modern feel. This blue grey is perfect. A soft and relatively neutral tone that will go with all the colours that are already in the room.

Colourcombo4

By keeping the room neutral and adding bursts of colour this room isn’t ‘too much’. The mix match of colours work well and adds a fresh and fun feel to the room. This is also a great way to cheaply and easily change a room. Just swap out the wall art and soft furnishings with different colours and patterns and create a whole new room.

COLOURCOMBO5

The concentration of mustard yellow around the fire is a great way to make a feature without the traditional fire place. Neutral walls, furniture and carpets with pops of green and blue work well in this space. We love the worn looking ceiling too.

Colour in your home: Neutrals

Greys, Browns, Black and White. The neutral colours that are often the basis of a room. Add touches of any colour to these and the combination won’t fail.

Blacks and whites.

Using lights that are neutral colours allows the texture of the shades to come through. And can be an interesting detailed central part of the room.

Colour in your home: Purple

Darker, plum tones bring a sophisticated feel. Lighter, lilac tones are relaxing and soft.

90e49ed85815b923bd4b66964b31d28a 6e5706a41a30ec34c35d5fb526e77032 d7785344efadcf0dae11821e7810aef3

By far, bedding gives you the widest range of options to adding purple tones to a room. From lights to darks and patterns to blocks, there is so much choice with this easy way of adding colour.

Lighting. There are many different purple lights out there, but most of them are too purple, harsh and just too much. Above we’ve found a good selection of different ways to use purple lights right.

Cushions, bunting and the odd piece of furniture.

Accessories are by far the simplest way to add colour. An easy way to change the colour of the room with non-permanent touches.

Colour in your home: Green

Green is a tranquil, refreshing and works in any room of the house.

Flowers are an obvious and easy way to get green into your room. Potted plants are simple and mostly easy to maintain. But if you want something a little more unique make your own miniature gardens. All you need is a jar, soil and some small plants or cacti.

Lamps, shades, books and crockery. A simple splash of colour.

Soft furnishings, curtains, and bedding.

Painted furniture with a worn look or a high shine. It will go with other neutral colours in any room.

Colour in your home: Red

There are many ways to get the colour red into your home other than painting a wall in that colour.

 

3e0ab026fda5091edd87447001a09b20 d43c201ccada01a4dbb7299e4250a89a1ce47cbf3bafca8743fcf6577ecf77d2

Or painting different pieces of furniture and even doors in a high gloss red is an easy way to add a bright splash of colour to your room.

87c74a99b82352a32119c47c57f24e39 ab20e5a4fb19ab9b741af6ba1f26aaf9 a679ac7d8db4a9be3425a0b8e37e89e8

A little bit of up cycling is a fun way to add the colour. Painting old chairs and re-upholstering cushions. Or fully re-upholstering chairs like the middle picture above. Another easy way is to paint the inside of mason jars with the colour and use them as vases, storage or candle holders.

233359961  233558618  ffc549a59690c0d2996c3729a4e36405

 Or just buy some simple accessories that you can add to your room.

Red as a colour when in the living room stimulates conversation and in the dining room encourages appetite.

Colour in your home: Yellow

Yellow is a energising, joyful, sunshine colour. It goes well with greys, blues and greens and works well as more of a hint than a block of colour.

  edd8c125a04d3e46df682812398bc5f6 bc1840d6b10ff57ae6ddcddac680a8a2 40ea8bd21f652cf353803cd06cf7e835

Bed sheets, cushions and throws are quick and simple way of adding that hint of yellow to a bedroom.
