I came across some beautiful, yet unexpected color combos on HGTV. Its amazing! I never would have considered these colors before. Here are a few of my favorites.
Green & Silver
Weve seen green and pink, green and brown, green and blue but this flat, muted shade with shiny silver creates real elegance and has a calming effect. Punch up the energy with darker shades of green in everything from lime to kelly.
Red & White
Nothing says bold like one or more red walls, even more so when contrasted with bright white cabinetry. Here, the lighting softens the look to make it striking, not shocking.
Black & Blue
In shades from slate to periwinkle, blue is an unusual choice to pair with black in a kitchen, but a creative one nevertheless. As opposed to natural-tone cabinetry, it really creates a look. This kitchen has style yet maintains its warmth.
Black & White
While black and white may not be an unusual pairing, outside of retro-style kitchens, its usually seen with a ton of another color. But with shiny surfaces and accoutrements, such as stainless steel, glass vessels and lots of natural lighting, it creates a surprisingly soft and approachable feel.
