Grass green paired with crisp white gives a bedroom a bold, fresh look. When mixed with blues pulled from water and sky, the scheme feels like summer year-round.
Multiple shades of green -- from kiwi to emerald -- give this bedroom a fun, informal atmosphere. When a variety of greens come from different prints and textures, the shades are easily mixed and matched.
Take your decorating to the next level by trying a bold color like sea-glass green on the ceiling. Featured on this bedroom's linen drapery panels and table skirt, the hue is echoed on the bed's accent pillow and the room's ceiling. A muted version of the bold hue coats the walls for a complete color scheme.
Neutral shades of brown, ranging from off-white to camel to chocolate, let green accents take center stage. When choosing bedding and wall paint, look for neutral colors with just a hint of green in them -- such as the upholstered cushions on the footstools at the end of this bed. Choosing neutral hues based in your accent color helps a palette feel cohesive.
It is possible for multiple bold colors to share a space beautifully. It's all about keeping them in the right proportions. For two colors, strive for a 70/30 split. Here, turquoise covers about 70 percent of the room, while lime accents the palette for the remaining 30 percent. If you're using three colors, try a 70/20/10 distribution.
