Treat your little princess to a pink paradise by painting her bedroom walls a playful combination of a lighter pink, like bubblegum (closer to the inner tier of the color wheel) and a darker pink, like fuchsia (on the outer two tiers). We like the addition of a white nightstand and a metal bed, like the Grafton full bed, which will act as a nice break for the eyes.
If the thought of a floor-to-ceiling plum dining room brings to mind the word "overkill," this room shows you it can be tastefully done. A formal dining set like the Belmont works perfectly. Just remember to stick to one shade of purple throughout the space for consistency.
Unless you're a fan of a certain professional basketball team, the likelihood of you pairing purple with yellow -- in any form -- is probably slim to none. And while these punchy color complements failed to make it into your design playbook in the past, this inspiring room may motivate you to "shake up" your own living room lineup!
In their purest forms, complementary colors blue and orange like to compete for all the attention. So to counterbalance their bold personalities, try working with the lighter tints on the two inner to middle tiers of the color wheel, ensuring that you stay within the same row for each color. That way, these two hues will share an intensity level.
Opting for a saturated jewel tone is a daring way to showcase the color blue. We love how regal this indigo (blue's other analogous color) looks as the backdrop to the dark wood buffet.
Turquoise is such a lovely hue, especially since it calls to mind a popular tropical destination -- the Caribbean! It makes sense then that this true in-between shade's analogous colors are in fact blue and green -- colors often associated with nature's vitality. This brilliant dining room focuses on the green column of the color wheel, and crisp wall color fits the bill beautifully.
Using bright colors like turquoise and orange-red in a bedroom can be a bit intimidating, so just be sure to select at least one softer tint (see those closer to the inside of the color wheel). Applying a muted shade of turquoise on the walls and a darker shade on the wainscoting results in a two-toned effect that makes the lively color scheme entirely livable.
Olive green is one of the most sophisticated versions of our inspiration color. Try it on your walls and add pops of white to counterbalance. And don’t forget the importance of thoughtfully chosen throw pillows on dark, leather furniture like the Marsala collection.
Alternating white and kelly green stripes brings unexpected boldness to this black-and-white bedroom. So if you're not fully on board with going all green, stripes are always a safe bet!
Need some more sunshine in your life? Then try this gorgeous color palette, which combines yellow with yellow-green, one of yellow's analogous colors. This is a particularly striking scheme for a small living room because it instantly brightens a room and tricks the eye into thinking the space is larger than it is.
When it comes to decorating with colors in the yellow family, all that glitters is gold! From the mustard gold wall color to the Conrad accent chairs in toffee and area rug, this monochromatic sitting area feels swank and modern.
In its purest form, orange is often associated with fall. But when you look at the duality of this sometimes stand-alone color, it can also call to mind a stunning sunset. And we can't think of a better inspiration for a bedroom! Playing with tints and shades of orange's analogous colors yellow-orange and orange-red helps set a refreshing tone for the dark walnut Belmont leather queen bedroom.
We bet any little lady would love to have this bedroom to call her own! Apricot walls get a bright boost with the addition of a pink lemonade stencil and matching bedding and accessories.
Red-hot hues are indeed romantic yet not always ideal for a master suite. When you're looking to work red into your bedroom, consider the less-obvious options. Burgundy is a sophisticated choice, particularly for your bedding, throw pillows and window treatments.
Not for the color shy, a bold red sectional or sofa, like the Vegas, will fill your living room with plenty of sass. To calm the megawatt intensity, try a golden wall color and coordinating accents. In this capacity, they act as neutrals to prevent the red from overwhelming the senses.
