Pairing colors is a useful tool in creating your design theme. Typically a room will be assigned three colors: a primary, a secondary, and an accent color. These colors most common ratio is 60:30:10 respectively. As you discovered earlier in the series, not only can colors influence your space, but the amount in which each one is used can have a different impact. Here are several unusual color combinations that actually look great. Let’s take a look!
Onyx and Rainbow Accent
When you think rainbow coloring in a design, you may immediately think eclectic. In this combination, onyx is the primary color used in almost an eighty percent ratio; white is given only about ten percent of the space while the rest of the colors are distributed evenly throughout throw pillows. This can be a tricky theme to master but actually is used in a more modern styled home. It is essential to find colors in the same hues and shades to find harmony. You can choose high gloss, pastel, or even matte to create your rainbow colors. Make sure you distribute even amounts throughout the room to not favor one over the other.
Jade and Burgundy
Green and red is usually the recipe for festive Christmas decor; however, by slightly altering the shade of green to jade and red to burgundy, these colors are able to feel less festive and more mature. The jade feels like a deep, elegant shade of green influencing property and abundance while burgundy feels determined and invigorating. This color combination feels vigorous and established.
Yellow and Turquoise
This color grouping mimics a sunny day with blue skies. The yellow can liven up the space, allowing it to feel more airy and fresh. The turquoise makes the room feel like a relaxed atmosphere. The combination goes excellent with addition plant life and opened windows. It is incredible how replicating the outdoors inside your home can help with many of the outside benefits.
With our unusual color pairings series coming to a close, remember that you can always try making your own color combinations. Decide the ratios in which you plan on applying them. Study different styles which you like and try it out in your space. You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
