17 Beautiful Interior Color Schemes 2023
Blue & Grass Green
As cool colors, green and blue always complement each other.
Personally, my favorite color scheme is blue and green because it consistently looks good and can be very versatile, depending on the shades used.
Brighter tones can give a preppy and fresh feel, while darker shades create a more sophisticated and moody vibe.
Black & White
A timeless favorite, black and white will always be in fashion.
The classic combination of black and white adds a touch of elegance to a more laid-back interior style, such as the popular modern farmhouse look.
The key to making this simple color palette work is incorporating different textures, which can be achieved by using various paint finishes.
Yellow & Gray
For those who are attracted to mustard shades, a great combination is pairing it with charcoal gray.
Yellow brings a light-hearted feel and enhances the muted gray tones, seamlessly blending into a home that lacks color.
Blue & White
A classic color combination, blue and white, can be found everywhere.
It’s a pairing that is always a good choice. Many people love the combination of shades of blue and white and feel that they can always depend on it.
Pink & Green
For a more unexpected twist on interior design, consider experimenting with a combination of pink and green. Personally, I adore the pink and teal color scheme.
There’s just something so appealing about how these two colors contrast and complement each other.
The softness and vibrancy of the pink and green pairing bring a perfect balance to any room.
Blue & Beige
Almost everyone loves blue, and it’s easy to understand why.
One of my preferred color schemes is a straightforward combination of Parisian grayish-blue, natural beige tones, and the addition of gold hardware.
This combination creates a calm and serene atmosphere in the room.
Light Blue & Emerald
For a cooler-toned room, blues and greens create a calm and easygoing atmosphere.
My favorite combination is a color scheme of graduated blues and greens with neutral tones, natural woods, and black accents.
To achieve this look, choose one color and use lighter and darker shades it throughout your space.
Black, Navy & Beige
Who says neutrals have to be boring? This space proves that they don’t have to be ordinary by incorporating pops of almost cobalt blue.
I absolutely love the elegant and stylish combination of black, blue, and beige in this home.
These colors complement each other perfectly and add depth to the space. The best part is that this color scheme is so versatile that it can work in any room of the house.
Gray-Green, White & Black
For a more neutral and earthy look, consider using gray-green tones and incorporating black and white.
Currently, my favorite color scheme consists of shades of grayish-green paired with black and white neutrals.
I am naturally drawn to green hues as they bring a touch of nature indoors, and I find sage tones to be particularly calming.
I appreciate how this combination offers a good amount of contrast while still maintaining a timeless feel.
Black & Red
For a high-impact space, black and red create a bold statement. Adding any touch of color to black results in a winning combination.
Personally, I love pairing black with red because it is both bold and soft, making it a true statement.
Although there are many shades of black, the blacker the better.
Forest Green & Light Gray
If you’re looking for more natural colors, green is unbeatable. I enjoy adding touches of green as an accent color throughout a neutral home.
Bolder shades like forest green have a strong impact and create a beautiful effect, especially when paired with light gray neutrals.
It’s a great balance of a bold color mixed with a neutral and can work well in any room!
Gray, Sand & Blue
Looking for a more modern coastal vibe? Blue, tan, and gray are perfect for you. They create a sense of peace and comfort while conveying a clean, modern feel.
This color scheme is adaptable for many environments, but I especially love it for homes with water views.
Gray & Brown
The two most popular neutrals right now are gray and brown, and they actually look great together.
When we use cooler tones like gray, we can bring balance by incorporating warmer tones and textures.
Moss Green, Tan & White
For a space with high drama, you can achieve the desired effect without using a lot of color. Instead, opt for neutral shades and incorporate luxurious fabrics.
One way I love to add color is through texture. By injecting color through texture, you can still maintain a neutral palette while creating a sense of sophistication.
White & Pops of Color
An always popular choice, pairing white with bright colors is always delightful.
In my opinion, the most classic color scheme of all is a clean white palette with pops of colored accents throughout. This can be achieved with the help of artwork and accessories.
Blue & Neons
Blue is incredibly calming, but adding a splash of bright colors can give it the extra boost it needs.
I absolutely adore how the vibrant pops of fluorescent hues make a soft blue wall color feel fresh and youthful.
The boldness of these neons brings a modern edge to what is traditionally a more conventional design.
Hunter Green & Red
For a bold and unique look, consider trying the combination of green and red. Don’t worry, it won’t give off a Christmas vibe.
Personally, I enjoy pairing hunter green with rich reds, especially when decorating boys’ rooms. This color combination has the ability to give any room a vintage feel, especially when complemented with the right accessories.
