RULE #01 – All red go together
Certain shades of red and pink together can be great for a rich, passionate living room or a pastel, floral bedroom.
RULE #2 – Soft oranges hues
Soft Oranges are very warming, while darker oranges must be used in moderation. Orange colors are commonly associated with amusement, the unconventional, extroverts, fire, activity, danger, taste and aroma, and obviously the Autumn season.
RULE #3 – Mix browns hues with orange
Browns look great with orange. Turquoise and cool grays are good complementary colors to orange.
RULE #4 – Go bold with yellow, green and orange
Yellows go well with greens and oranges, they create a fresh feeling. Matches greatly with white and other more neutral pastel colors.
RULE #5 – Choose complementary colors
Blues and yellows or gold are complementary colors and create a more classic interior combination for an upbeat, fresh environment. Add some magenta or green for pops and accents.
RULE #6 – Neutral color to balance
Green is often used like a neutral color to balance a room since certain shades of green, such as soft sage or mint, can go with almost any other color.
RULE #7 – 50 Shades of Blue
All blues go together and all greens go together. Shades of blue and green are fantastic together at all levels of intensity, from a pale sky and duck egg through to dark inks and peacocks.
RULE #8 – Use violet to give a royalty touch
Shades of violet can work well together but may be too overpowering for most. Violets also look great with greens. Blue violets work well with cool blues, and red violets look beautiful with soft pinks. Use violet to give a royalty touch to a more classic interior.
RULE #9 – Grays and neutrals mix together
Grays and neutrals mix together well for a classic backdrop of unobtrusive tones, and such “colorless” palettes have been popular in the past and continue to be used today. Almost any color can be mixed with neutrals and grays to create unusual and stunning interiors.
