You’re not afraid of color in most areas of your life. (You totally rock a bright statement heel.) So why do you play it so safe when it comes to color palettes in your home? Here, nine combos that might seem out there--but actually look fantastic.


Gray + Yellow

Yellow is a notoriously difficult color to decorate with. But when selected in a saturated hue and paired with warm gray textures, it’s downright sophisticated.


Pink + Orange

The pink/orange combo might initially make you think of ice cream, but there’s nothing sherbet about this cheery bathroom.


Hot Pink + Black

Too much Barbie pink and it’ll feel like a beauty parlor--so go for a mix of rich and pastel tones to keep things looking elevated.

Pale Pink + Olive

See? Olive walls aren’t so scary.


Turquoise + Mustard

Deep browns also play very nice.


Dark Blue + Black

Admit it: You thought this would look gloomy.


White + Off-white

Think you can’t mix bright whites with warm creams and beiges? This dreamy bedroom begs to differ.


Purple + Lime Green

Use subtle pops for minimalist appeal.


Purple + Gold

Then again, there’s nothing wrong with going regal.
