We begin with an all-time color duo favorite: lime green and cobalt blue. Classy and elegant, this combination blends a verdant shade from nature with a rich azure hue. And as you can see in the elegant dining room below, you can always throw in a second accent shade, such as violet.[photo by Eric Piasecki, from Katie Ridder Homes].
We now move to some of the hottest colors in today’s design climate: emerald green and orange. In fact, Emerald Green is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013. And we can see why. This refreshing shade pops against white, and it sings beautifully when juxtaposed with orange, as shown in the next image. [from Larry Hanna Photography].
Teal blue and gold make a bold statement, and many rooms feature teal as the anchor shade and gold as the accent, as shown below. We love how gold appears on artwork, tables, rug, wall and greenery! That soothing teal wall is the perfect backdrop, don’t you think? [from Busybee Design].
Salmon is such a versatile color! Not only does it cover the walls of many a formal living room, it can be presented in a low-key setting as well. In fact, many tropical, beachy motifs utilize salmon. This color really pops when combined with an icy blue, as shown in the casual modern living room in the next featured image. [from Envi Design].
