Designer Color Schemes You Have to See

Walk into a white and yellow space, and you feel energized. Bright fuschia invokes fun and sass. A neutral color palette has a calming effect. Color dictates the energy of a room, which is why choosing a color scheme is one of the most important and most difficult interior design decisions to make. The good news is that there aren’t many hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing a color scheme. One basic design guideline is to pick one dark color, one light color, and one bright color. While you don’t want color combinations to feel chaotic, you’d be surprised at which unlikely color combinations create a cohesive look. Here are some designer color scheme ideas you have to see:

A black bedroom set is paired with gray bedding, bringing in pops of color to break up the dark with yellow throw pillows and accent pieces.

Teal and Espresso: Espresso’s classic warmth makes it a popular furniture color choice. It goes with just about anything. Pairing it with teal provides a warm pop of color that complements the warmth of the espresso. This dining table’s espresso finish is traditional, but its base gives it a modern feel. The teal chairs add to that modern flair and adds interest and appeal.

White, Charcoal and Burnt Orange: Don’t shy away from orange! Burnt orange offers a nice contrast to the modern sophistication of charcoal walls and the crisp, clean lines of white bedroom furniture. This room incorporates burnt orange in a throw blanket, pillows, a vase, and other decorative items to warm up the space.
