Colour Combinations for Walls

Violet is the colour at one end of the spectrum, and is a very intense and rich colour. It also lends a feeling of intimacy, and works very well with a very classical furniture arrangement in the living room. Lighter shades have a calming effect on the mind, while darker shades make a bold statement. Violet is naturally rich, and lighter shades of the colour can be paired with greens and beiges, while darker shades work well with lighter shades of violet and oranges.

Peaches and oranges work well with modern decor, and create a sense of space, making the room look larger. Living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms are perfect for peach and orange combinations. You could even add a splash of blue to add a little something extra to the colour scheme of the room. Another classic combination for living rooms and bedrooms are browns and beiges. These various shades provide a formal ambiance and beige could give either a classic or contemporary look. Pair this colour scheme with yellow light and rich furniture to really make the room look outstanding.

At the other end of the colour spectrum is the colour red. Like violet, it is strong, deep and dynamic. The colour adds a touch of romance and flamboyance to the room. You could either use it on a column or small part of a wall, or on an entire wall. It can be used with any colour scheme, and adds a certain amount of excitement and energy to the room. You can even use one red wall as the centrepiece of your room, and then choose other colours to compliment it. Once you get around to painting your house, keeping these colour matchmaking tips in mind can really help to completely transform your house into a loving and beautiful home.
