Not entirely black, but onyx. A hue so close to the daring shade that you can hardly tell the difference. Onyx works due to how daring it is when it is contrasted with other hues that brighten the room. There’s a sense of velvet that comes from this particular shade. It will appear almost as if your walls are multidimensional. If you decide to use onyx material, consider going for an onyx sofa and making it the statement the room needs to come to life.

Multidimensional Pink

The hue itself will bring a bold twist that makes the room have a bold focal point.


The bolder the shade of yellow the better! It’s all about creating a contrasting appeal that brightens the room overall.

As for having a yellow element, it doesn’t matter the shade, or how light or dark it is. What’s important is how bold the contrast will be. If you have a mainly neutral twist, a daring yellow hue is perfect. Whereas, if you already have bold hues in the room, a softer shade of yellow will do. Having a contrast will instantly allow you to give the room a visual break where you need it most. It’s all about making a visual display that enhances the room overall.


Use a variety of salmon shades to truly enhance the room’s natural authentic appeal.

Think of it as the perfect way to bring a stark hue that allows you to embrace the room and any other shade that you have. It’s one of the best hues when you want to blend a bold shade that makes the room feel fresh. Due to the shade being bold itself, it can make any area of the room feel new and sleek.

Shades of Nude

Working with neutral hues will enhance the room’s natural aesthetic, while still being chic and charming.

When it comes to using nude consider using for an array of shades. Having multiple shades of nude will instantly create a multidimensional feel that is very chic. It’s almost as if you are bringing different shades of the same hue and allowing it to make a statement on its own and apart. Work shades that are similar to beige and work from there to make a huge statement when and where you like it best. Pair it with bold shades such as yellow and allow it to sit back and absorb the room overall.
