9 Surprising Color Combinations We Bet You Haven’t Thought Of
Pink and olive! Turquoise and mustard!
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.
