Having more vibrant color combinations in your room will make your day more cheerful. However, sometimes it’s not so easy to combine those colors together to make a cohesive look. You can’t just throw any colors you want because that will feel overwhelming. You need to set the basic first, then add the bold colors for the accents. That way, you can still have the harmonious color combination.
Take the living room, for instance, the basic colors are neutral ones, with grey and white for the couch, cabinets, carpet, and room divider. The wooden table and floors also give the neutral brown color, while the TV set on the room divider is black. The strong color combinations can then be added in forms of pillows, ottoman, and a comfort chair in colorful design. The basic color of these items is white, but it has small rectangular patterns in different bold colors.
Another example is the combination of bold and neutral colors in the terrace. Here, the wicker furniture and the wooden panels on the floor are dark brown and white. They create the neutral colors background. Then the bold colors are added in forms of pillows and area rugs in various colors like red, orange, blue, and yellow, but still in combination with neutral colors like black, grey, and brown. That way, the decoration also has a balanced look.
You can also apply the same idea with slightly different technique. Apply the bold color to one big item in your room, like a side of the wall or a long couch, then set the neutral color for the rest. You can still add it with decorative items or apply colorful wallpaper in rich pattern on the other part of the wall. The color combination ideas provide more cheerful ambiance to a design.
