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 pink is yellow-green.

A dining room is all about creating ambiance. This is the one room where you get to dazzle dinner guests with a beautifully set table, delicious meals and a welcoming space to gather. So don't be afraid to add a dose of drama and try something a little different, like a pink complementary color scheme.

When this pink is paired with its complement, yellow-green, the effect is light and whimsical and it serves as a great reminder that decorating is about having fun! This color combo is also a perfect choice for a dining room (as you can clearly see!), and you'll love that it takes on a charming café vibe.

To get this look, paint your walls a soft, pale pink and introduce yellow-green in touches with a painted cabinet, wall art and a rug that features hints of yellow-green.

As for your dining furniture, a set with comfy, button-tufted upholstered chairs will add to the ambience and encourage guests to stay and chat for a while.

Hang a chandelier with pink crystals above and add a curvy clock for yet another touch of whimsy and you'll have one deliciously inviting dining room!
