Let’s take a closer look at some classic color combinations and why they may be the perfect choice for your home.

Interior design trends come and go, but color combinations that blend or contrast well tend to stand the test of time.Black and White

This combination is classic and mainly used when a homeowner wants to create a modern and simple design. This color combination is inherently sleek, elegant, and refined. Benjamin Moore has a fantastic “Super White” that helps offset the black and create the classic look you are searching for.

The fusion of these two colors in any room tends to bring out the natural side to a room as these are two of the natural environments most stunning colors. The yellow most notably as symbolic of the sun and the green of vegetation. Since there are many varied hues of each of these color palettes, homeowners can get creative when combining yellow and green.

Earth Tones

If you are trying to create a mood of relaxation and calmness, use Earth tones such as beige, grey, tan, white, and clay. These colors tend to make us all feel at ease. Add a splash of color to the room with flowering houseplants or throw pillows/blankets.

Green and Blue

This fun combo can be both traditional or ultra modern depending upon the hues of each. Depending upon the intensity of the colors you choose, you can determine the mood that this combination can evoke.

Red and Gold

Red is a favorite color of dining rooms and when paired with the gold can bring the room back to traditional Tudor times. This color combination can be updated to more modern times by changing the red to pink and toning down the gold to a sand or tan color.
