7 Colour Combos for Bold and Brave Homeowners

When choosing colours for interiors, using bold hues might seem a bit challenging for some. Yes, it can be a bit scary when you venture out of the neutral zone and be bold enough to use vibrant colours.

Using bold colours for your home is all about balance. Always remember the 60-30-10 rule: 60% of the dominant colour, which unifies all the colours and holds it together; 30% of a secondary colour, which adds visual interest and makes the colours more delightful to look at; and 10% of an accent colour, which adds a little spark and balance to the intensity of the dominant and secondary hues. Homeowners can use these colour combinations as a guide in experimenting with colour palettes so that their homes remain vibrant all year long.

Here are seven colour combos for bold homeowners who want to add a little splash of thrill and excitement to their homes:

1. Hot Pink and Green

While it may seem to be the most comfortable colour combo, interior enthusiasts love the hot pink-and-green combination for a retro look with a bit of femininity. Combine the calming effects of green with pink’s playfulness in your kids’ rooms by using a solid green colour on the walls, accenting the room with hot pink-hued accents, and creating a dramatic contrast between the colours by using curtains and pillowcases that will neutralize these bold hues.

2. Yellow and Green

Yellow and green can be an impeccable colour combo. While yellow brings cosiness and comfort in your homes, green is inarguably soothing to the human eyes. These two colours can create versatile results, just as how versatile your kitchen can be.

Add a little funk to your kitchen by using yellow cabinets, dining furniture, and storage shelves to accentuate the green walls, countertop, and backsplash. From lively kitchen conversations to quiet-down times while everyone is eating, green and yellow are excellent choices for modern kitchen design and decorating.

3.Turquoise and Ruby Red

Opposites attract. Turquoise and red may be opposing hues in the colour wheel, but this combination will result in a sharp contrast that will make your interiors stand out. Experiment on these colours in your bathroom. You may use turquoise-hued tiles for the walls, rugs, and towels, and contrast it with red pieces of furniture like chairs, storage shelves, and mirror frames. However, you don’t really need to paint your wall red or turquoise just to enjoy this combination. You may balance this with pieces of furniture or artworks that will create an eye-popping interior.

4. Orchid and Gold

Feel like a queen when you enter your living room splashed with orchid and gold colours. This bold, royal combination will definitely accentuate your glamorous living room with the metallic element of gold, toning down the boldness of orchid. The vibrant orchid-coloured couch, pillowcases, carpet, and fabrics will definitely give you the regal vibe. Add enough zing to your living room by accessorising it with gold-coloured pieces to give it a more creative look and a visual equilibrium.

Not the usual colour combo, but mustard yellow and brown will give off a vintage look and feel to your living space. Use this colour combo for your reading nook and it will give a subtle vibe of the '70s, with its brown accents combined with a bright coat of mustard yellow.

6. Teal, Grey, and Chocolate Brown

If you are more experimental with colours, try this all-time favourite combo—teal, grey, and chocolate brown. This combination exudes sophistication, class, and bit of fun with the chocolate brown pieces of furniture accentuating the space and complemented perfectly by the grey couches and curtains, and a teal-coloured wall that puts everything together.

7. Orange and Blue

Stimulate your mind while working by combining blue and orange colours for your work space at home. While blue makes you more productive, orange creates a vibrant, warm, and exciting ambience at home. Deep blue is an excellent choice for your upholstery, making the pieces of furniture pop. Also, various textures—from the chairs to the room rug—add interest to the matching blue tones. Meanwhile, orange is a nice way to bring novelty and tranquillity. Orange-painted walls and other furnishings in shades of this zesty hue bring a unique touch to the room, creating a more vibrant atmosphere that home-based workers will enjoy.
