When choosing a color scheme for the rooms of your home, you may put a lot of thought into what color combinations look good together. There are actually many colors that go together. The bigger question is, will these color combinations stand the test of time? There are certain color combinations that always look good and stand the test of time.
Shades Of Blue
Blue has become thought of as a neutral color. It looks good in many different rooms of the house. Accents of other neutral colors can easily be added to the room and look great. You can mix and match shades of blue. Dark blues look great with lighter shades of turquoise or sky blue.
Black And White
This seemingly simple color combination comes with a lot of class. Because of the high contrast of the two colors, it looks quite sophisticated. It works in many different rooms. Accents of silver, wood, and even some warmer colors like shades of red that pop can add definition to a room with a black and white base.
Tan With Blue Or Green
Shades of tan or beige go along really well with blues and greens. With a beige base, it’s possible to really make accents of other earthy tones stand out in a room.
Gray With Blue Or Green
Just as tans go along really well with blue and green shades, so to do shades of gray. The gray base provides a soothing palette for earthy tones to shine through.
Gray And Shades Of White
Just like black and white shades of gray (usually darker tones) go along well with many different shades of white. With these two very neutral colors at the base of a room, it allows other colors to shine through. You don’t even need to focus on earth tones. Allow your imagination to flow and choose from a variety of colors of the rainbow.
Green And Brown
With touches of white mixed in- even a white wall, you can really make green and brown work well together without making a room seem like a jungle. You can give the room touches of other earth-toned accents in order to bring depth in the space.
Blue Shades And Gray With White
These colors may all look kind of bland on their own, but when you put them together, they shine. The 3 colors together make a usually cool color scheme seem warmer and more inviting. Just remember if you’re using a shade of deep blue not to overdo it in any room as it can be overpowering.
When you choose your colors wisely, your home will never go out of style. As you can see, there’s plenty of workable color combinations that allow you to keep your home looking stylish.
