7 Interior Color Combos To Try This Year

Nothing reinvigorates a home for the new year like a fresh coat of paint. But before you grab that gallon of eggshell, you have to check out these interior color combos we’re obsessing over. When done correctly, it’s easy to make rich tones work as muted neutrals. So don’t be intimidated by a fun pop of color in your space. Read on for the seven interior color combos we’re dying to try this year.

pink + green


Muted, desaturated colors make this combo neutral heaven. Go for a deep hunter green and a soft, dusty pink for the perfect mix.

muted lilac + neutrals


A muted lilac paint color is a chameleon and can pull different shades throughout the day. It pairs perfectly with any neutral, so mix it up!

orange + pink


It’s easy to feel like you’re in sherbert land when you mix orange and pink. But by using a rust-tinged orange, you actually get a really modern neutral base that pairs beautifully with pops of pink.

indigo + goldenrod


Blue and yellow have always been complementary, but these deeper, matte tones give it a modern sophistication.

emerald + black


You can expect to see a lot of this jewel tone in 2019. But rather than going the traditional route of pairing it with rattan or light neutrals, try adding black furniture and accents to the room to create a really cool and stark contrast.

coral + periwinkle


We’d be remiss if we didn’t include Pantone’s 2019 color of the year. While the color on its own can be a little bright and overwhelming for a full interior, we love it paired here with a matte periwinkle complementary color.

caravan clay + white + black


We’re obsessed with Sherwin Williams’s paint color of the year. Expect to see this trendy hue in entryways, kitchens, bathrooms and more. We especially love it paired with a black-and-white contrast.
