The Colors

Start this palette with peacock blue and use it in different intensities, such as a darker version on the sofa upholstery and a lighter shade on the walls. Counter the blues with warm yellows as your supporting color. Pink frequently makes an appearance in the night sky and, in this scheme, plays out as vibrant fuchsia. A muted citron is the second accent color and is a complementary hue to the fuchsia. Ivory is the final accent and balances the rest of the bright colors.

Play around with these colors in different proportions. "Any one can dominate, depending on your tastes and preferences," designer Elaine Griffin says. The dawn sky is different every morning. Consider using fuchsia as the main color and using blue as the accent, or yellow as the star and blue as the supporting color.
