February 21, 2019by Stephanie Ruter

The colors you chose to represent a space or a particular room set the mood for your entire home. That is why choosing the right colors is the most important aspect of the design process. Most individuals have one color in mind, but they have a difficult time finding the right supporting colors. That is why we came up with four popular color combinations with a theme to help you visualize!

These color combinations are based off of four different landscapes that go with the sought-after  colors of 2019. These popular colors for your knowledge include:

  • Moody Colors
  • Jewel Tones
  • Hunter & Fern Greens
  • Muted Pastels
  • Misty/Blue Grays
  • Pewter
  • Earthy Grays & Mushroom
  • Bold Creams & Beiges
  • Browns with Clay/Copper tones
  • Coral
  • Pops of Bright or Mustard Yellow
  • Dusty or Rose Gold Pinks

That is why choosing a theme helps because looking at a list of colors can be overwhelming. PLUS, you probably already LOVE a bunch of them, but have no idea if they go well together or if it’s the right choice. Here are four examples of mood boards based on the 2019 colors. We hope it gives you some color and design inspo! ENJOY!

That Desert Life: 

Clay, dusty pink, cream, and green are all trending colors. BEST PART is that they go so well together! When we think of these four colors, we think western landscapes. Which means this color scheme is perfect for all the boho lovers out there or western themed homes. BUT REMEMBER – these colors aren’t just limited to boho or western designs. YOU can make them fit your personal design style too!

Urban Living:

Black, blue grays, pops of yellow, and cobalt or navy blues are sweeping the design world. These colors combined together in one room or throughout a whole house screams modern or contemporary spaces…. in other words~ urban living! Dark. Bold. Unique. These three words are what 2019 designs are all about, so think about those three words when you remodel your next space.

The Mediterranean Feels:

Coral, muted pastels like pale pink or blue, and pewter are so soothing. I don’t know one person who hasn’t dreamed of laying on a beach in Greece or Italy…have you? That is why we give this color combination two thumbs up. Coral is all the rage right now because its bold, energizing, and accents GREAT with a multitude of other colors. Not to mention, pastels and pewter have a place in any design style. Now your mind is thinking…I wish my whole house felt like an island in the Mediterranean Sea! I know I am…

Keep Calm & Hug a Tree:

Hunter, and fern green, mushroom, and earthy beiges are such a HUGE hit! The forest is such a relaxing atmosphere that no wonder individuals want to bring the outdoors inside. Greens are calming and represent nature. Beiges and gray browns are warm and inviting. This color combination is a wonderful choice for any home. Especially for that cozy log cabin or craftsman style home in a wooded setting.

To end this blog post, we want you to step away with a few tips. We recognize that the four mood boards above won’t inspire everyone or represent everyone’s style. That is why we want you to have the opportunity to create your own mood board for your next remodel or new build.

Tip #1: Pick a theme. It sounds silly, but it honestly helps. You want your home or rooms to be a sanctuary. A safe place to come home to after a long stressful day. So, think of your favorite places to be. Examples:

Favorite destinations….

  • Hawaii
  • Bahamas
  • Mexico
  • Greece
  • New Zealand

Favorite places to hike or camp….

  • Yellowstone National Park
  • Glacier National Park
  • Alaska
  • Island Royale
  • Iceland

Favorite places to shop….

  • New York, New York
  • Chi Town
  • Beverly Hills
  • Charleston
  • Paris

Or it could be simple places like….

  • Your favorite coffee shop
  • Your go-to-beach spot
  • Your favorite place to run or hike
  • Your favorite hotel or vacation cottage
  • The list goes on…

Note: There is no wrong environment to choose. Choose the setting that feels ideal for you!

Tip #2: Next choose that “POP” of color you want/would love to incorporate in your home. Make sure you really LOVE that color and that it undeniably fits with your theme. Then pick the other neutral main colors for that space or your whole house.

Example: My favorite color is green. So, in my kitchen I have accents of bright lime green throughout as my “POP” of color. The rest of my kitchen is a mixture of whites and grays. My color may be a little extreme for some individuals. So, your “pop” of color can be more subdued/safer like gold, matte black, raw wood or it can be bright and bold (like mine) with pops of coral, yellow, etc. to add flair to a space!

Pops of colors could include and are not limited to….

  • Cabinetry
  • Tile
  • Hardware
  • Dishes
  • Towels
  • Rugs
  • Wall art
  • Furniture
  • Accent walls
  • Pillows & Blankets
  • Etc.

Tip #3: After choosing your “theme” and “pop” of color it is important to make sure the other supporting neutral colors stick to either a “warm” or “cool” color palette. Don’t get me wrong, there are always exceptions to every rule, BUT to make sure your design is more cohesive sticking to one or the other is preferred. Example:

Warm neutral colors….

  • Creams
  • Tans
  • Earthy Grays
  • Mushroom
  • Beige

Cool neutral colors….

  • Grays
  • Blue grays
  • Pewter
  • Black

Exception to that rule….

  • Muted pastels
  • White
  • Off-white
