The Colors

For a color saturated look, apply aqua to your walls or a piece of upholstered furniture. Yellow is a sunny complement to the aqua and can be used on window treatments and smaller upholstered pieces. To ground these bright colors, accent with peacock (a more saturated version of aqua) and ruby red, and give the eye a rest by incorporating a soft grayed white.

Keep in mind that this scheme can also be used with neutrals as the foundation. Where you plan to apply color, utilize aqua in the most predominate way (such as on window treatments or small upholstered pieces). Incorporate yellow on a smaller scale, such as on throw pillows and decorative accessories, and fill in with the supporting peacock, ruby, and gray-white.
