A Selection of Wall Color Combination Ideas from Today's Designers

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Skip white trim...
Everyone knows how to do a standard color on a wall with painted white trim, and that usually looks beautiful, but sometimes the same tried and true methods can get a bit boring.

Spice it up! Don't be afraid to use more tones of color...

Here are some interesting color combination ideas from top designers that are fresh and exciting for inspiration as you prepare to have your interior painted:

  • Red on Red! Imagine a red on red library or even a bedroom with a bold Chinese red in a high gloss painted over several times for added depth, and then a slightly browner subdued red on the mouldings to create a shadow line and add contrast. This example is bold and intense but you can see how it would pull you in...
  • Baby Grey with Mahogany: For a very soothing yet sophisticated and understated "earth and sky look", in a room with lots of dark wood, try a baby blue-grey with a lot more grey in it, so it doesn't look blue but just has a touch, and paint all the trim a dark chocolate brown. This looks beautiful with glass lighting to warm up the space.
  • Grey and Lavender: Another fun thing to do with the versatility of the grey neutral is to pick a medium shade with an earthy hue that can span from green to straight grey to bluish depending on the light and time of day (yes, this works best in a room with lots of natural light, maybe a kitchen?) and then sweeten it up with some very pale lavender trim.
