Complementary

Opposites attract as proven by this scheme, which pairs two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. These colors complement each other, adding interest and energy to a room. Looking at the color wheel, you can see that the complement of orange is blue.

A perfect balance of warm and cool color properties, it's no surprise that orange and blue can make for one gorgeous color palette. On its own, true orange can be overwhelming, so adding just the right amount of blue can help cool things off a bit.

To ensure each color has an opportunity to shine, try painting your walls neutral orange and wallpaper an accent wall in your favorite shade of blue. In this guest room, the Baroque patterned wallpaper added a touch of sophistication to this more modern color combo.

If you want to re-create this look in one of your guest rooms, opt for bold orange bedding to make a stylish statement. Then, toss on neutral pillows and a throw and add a complementing area rug to tone it down and help add balance.

Keep these ideas in mind and you'll create a room that's inviting, but with a pop of excitement!
