I love a good color combination, don’t you?! Yet finding one that is both interesting and pleasing can be tricky. Sure, you may discover a dynamic duo that grabs your attention, but the combination must also be something that you can live with. And hopefully truly love! Today we present three unique color combinations that have the power to refresh your interior. And speaking of fresh, each featured palette is crisp and enticing. From soothing green and powerful blue to warm hues such as peach and salmon, the colors that follow were selected for their standout potential. Enjoy!
Mint and Salmon
First up: mint and salmon. Mint can range from green to blue, while salmon often ranges from coral to pink. There are no hard and fast rules here. The result of this combo: a vivd, tropical color pairing that’s sure to get noticed. Below we see the Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet Cover + Shams from West Elm and the Mint Green Geometric Throw Pillow from Wantcy:

Did you know that Joy Cho has also designed a line of products for The Land of Nod?! And her Sundae Best Bedding (shown below) integrates ice cream and sprinkle motifs with salmon, mint and more. Once again, we see how yellow is a welcome addition to this color combo. [from The Land of Nod]
Peach and Cobalt
Next up: peach and cobalt. Blue and orange are complementary colors, so it’s no wonder that this combo works! Not only does it dress up elegant spaces, it can also create a nautical look. But it’s even more fun to shake things up by mixing classic and modern pieces in these shades. Below we see the PB Classic Stripe Duvet Cover & Sham in Lapis Blue from Pottery Barn, as well as the peach Ghost Chair (featured at Sybaritic Spaces).
Blue and peach can even make a big impact in small doses. No need to paint your walls! Try mixing cobalt furnishings with peach accents, such as pillows and throws. [from Michael McKinley and Associates]
Rich Green and Bright Yellow
Today’s final featured color combination is rich green and bright yellow. The green can range from a vivid kelly green to a darker yet equally powerful hunter green. This duo has been extremely popular in Hollywood Regency-style spaces, especially since many geometric lattice patterns (used on wallpaper and textiles) feature green. Below we see Bamboo Wallpaper in Green and the Capri Teardrop Table Lamp in Yellow, both from Jonathan Adler.
