So, are you all done creating the interior design you dreamed of?

It’s time to add some beautiful accents to the perfect look. Color is a fantastic tool for emphasizing the most important elements of your room and furniture, however mismatched colors  can make it look boring and even ugly.

We have some ideas to help you choose and mix the right colors for various locations in your home. 

The modern approach to mixing colors is usually a combination of neutral, light wall and furniture colors with some vibrant accents. Bright spots in your area help to create a really gorgeous look, so let’s think of some perfect mixes.

Monochromatic color schemes

The first option you should consider when choosing paint for your walls is monochromatic colors.

Dark and deep colors (like the deep blue in the picture) will create a perfect match with the pale colors of your furniture. Think of dark blue, violet, magenta, grey, deep ruby and emerald combined with milky white or pure white furniture and canvas paintings’ frames.

Monochromatic color schemes are the easiest way to match colors, so if you are a beginner, it’s a good option for you to start your first interior design with.  

Two-color combinations

Who says you have to paint all walls in your room the same color?

Another modern trend in stylish interior solutions is painting room walls with 2 colors. Look at how cool that can be!

It’s actually not as hard as it seems. Just remember the core mixes:

Red harmoniously matches white, blue, pink, orange, golden yellow, bronze and black.

Bright orange goes with the lighter orange tones, beige, white, yellow, black and gray colors. Don’t be afraid of bright colors like orange.

The green shades are good with lime, grey, beige and black.

Blue colors are often used in modern interior decor and look fantastic with beige, silver, white and purple tones.

Pink  is great with ivory, white, grey, beige, lilac and black.

Yellow color creates a perfect match with pale yellow or coffee beige, white, black, grey, golden, cream.

Brown color shades need a touch of the brighter tones like golden, mocco, beige, light green, yellow and blue.  

Don’t think of just matching the walls and furniture colors. In fact, a lot of smaller design elements can create a big meaning. Experiment with colors in decorative pillows, carpets, curtains, interior toys and chandeliers. The best effect can often be reached with the help of paintings, photos and decorative elements hung on the walls.

Just take a look at these examples of how a hand-painted canvas can make the interior look stylish and complete.
