1. Mix & match
From pale to dark, muted to vibrant, these two color combinations show how a variety of colors and textures can balance.
In the first palette similar amounts of buttermilk and blue contrast an accent of punchy red. For a utilitarian look, use the chalky blue on upholstery against a clean and simple backdrop of pale yellow walls and architrave. Introduce flashes of red on accessories and quilted soft furnishings to bring a modern twist.
Introducing the trio of greens, as seen in the second version, for a more eclectic look. This quantity of colors can work well when mixing multiple elements into one space; use the greens and blue for upholstery on different furniture designs and unite them with accents of red soft furnishings. The cream calms the look and is key for window treatments, as well as paintwork.
