Sage, Pistachio + Mint

Monochromatic color schemes are best for giving rooms a well-layered vibe. To layer spring into a space, consider using sage, pistachio and mint green tones together.

Canary, White + Kelly Green

Choose colors by sticking with those which appear together in nature. One classic color combination evocative of springtime meadows is canary yellow, Kelly green and white. The yellow tones are commonly found in tulips, and the saturated green can be seen in lush foliage. White is a perfect neutral which helps mediate the intensity of the other two bold colors.

Pistachio + Ballet Slipper Pink

Pistachio and pale pink are two spring colors which work well in feminine spaces. The key to keeping this combination from feeling juvenile is to choose a pink with just enough white undertones to prevent it from reading as bubblegum. Try light pink and a medium pistachio tone when painting walls with either of these hues.

Violet + Robin's Egg Blue

Robin's egg blue is one of the most iconic colors associated with spring. Robin's egg blue is commonly paired with chocolate brown or pink when used year round, but it can take on an entirely new personality when partnered with something unexpected, like purple. For the perfect contrast, consider combining Robin's egg blue with deep shades of violet.

Pear + Parchment

In addition to pastels and muted colors, neutrals can also work well for springtime flair. Pear green works well when paired with sandy neutrals such as taupe and greige. When used next to flesh tones such as beige or pinky creams, pear will read a bit more muddy and yellow.

Lemon + Mint

Lemon yellow is a springtime staple commonly seen in tulips, daffodils and daisies. An excellent color to pair with lemon is mint green. While yellow on walls and furniture may become overpowering, mint is a calm, soothing color which works beautifully on walls, ceilings and upholstery.

Teal + Salmon

Teal is traditionally a color seen in summer; however, by mixing it with feminine tones, this blue-green hue can instantly take on a springtime personality. Salmon is the perfect mix of pink and orange but can overwhelm a space with its saturation. To use teal and salmon effectively, stick with teal as the dominant color and salmon as its accent.

Celadon + Tiffany Blue

Tiffany blue is often found in spring prints paired with other pastels such as pink and lilac. Put a fresh spin on this classic hue by pairing it with celadon green. Designers consider celadon a difficult color to work with because of its intense yellow undertones. When paired with greens, the color instantly reads more as a yellow, but when paired with blues and purples, celadon comes across more as lime green.

Lavender + Butter Tones

Colors taken from spring bouquets can create perfect interior color palettes. Here, the different purple tones seen in the hydrangeas work well with the buttery tones of the daffodil. Remember, purples and yellows always pair nicely since they're complementary hues on the color wheel.

Raspberry + Celery

While celery green tends to work well with adult spaces, raspberry often feels youthful. To pair these colors together successfully, use raspberry strictly through accents. In this bedroom, one chair covered in raspberry fabric does the trick.

Artichoke Green + Hot Pink

Hot pink roses are one of the most desired flowers for springtime wedding bouquets. Put a new twist on this super saturated hue by pairing it with more masculine greens such as artichoke or dark olive.
