Canary Yellow & Indigo

Feeling courageous? Make bold canary yellow your living room's focal color! Indigo tones down this powerful hue while giving it an inviting feel. Try adding texture and pattern to your palette by introducing a shibori throw or pillow as your indigo accent. For extra impact, paint a complementary statement wall for a unified, well-rounded look that shines.

Hot Pink & Turquoise

Surprisingly versatile, this bold color combo works well with a number of design styles. Think a bold pop for southwest patterns, or a striking splash in a midcentury space. This combo is playful and bright, yet a trend you’ll still love mixing and matching next season.

Crimson & Sage

Soothing earth tones get a jolt of energy when paired with a bright red rug. This contrast creates a happy balance, especially when there are patterns and textures involved. The key to this color combo is to anchor the floor with the bolder color so the room doesn’t feel too busy, keeping the walls airy and light.

Vibrant Blue & Yellow

More hip than highlighter, this electric pairing makes a big impact without being overwhelming. This duo looks especially stunning when paired with neutral tones such as black and white.
