Rich Burgundy

The richness of a dark burgundy hue displayed as an accent color comes from its ability to stand out while giving the other hues their own spotlight. Pair with shades of white, gray, plum and red for a perfect contrast that makes sense and comes full-circle.

Burgundy itself has always had a sophisticated undertone, however, a richer, darker tone adds a mysterious vibe. Pair with metallics for an elegant, fun twist on this classic hue. You may also want to add nudes that bounce off of the beauty of this color.


Olive green is perfect as an accent color in a muted room, especially when it is paired with shades of gray and/or mutes hues of burnt orange. Add intricate light fixtures to bring your decor together in an easy laidback manner.

Timeless, classic hues of blue are coming back on trend due to more homeowners wanting to have a coastal, backdrop that screams ageless décor. That is what classic blues such as navy paired with white bits that have some sort of texture and pattern do for your home.


Add a shiny bit to your red of choice in the kitchen for a retro vibe. Pair with different bits of red here and there throughout the kitchen area to make the entire space have a cohesive appeal. Use nudes and steel as the main color of choice for an undeniable sleekness.

Red has had a bad connotation for quite some time due to being known as a “stressful” color. However, it is one of those retro shades that is coming back to become a staple in the home. We love this retro shade in the kitchen and office space for a twist of rich color.

Unforgettable Teal

Teal in the kitchen is perfectly vintage and beautiful especially when it is paired with classic steel aesthetics, and/or other dark, vintage pieces. You may even want to add classic light fixtures to bring that timeless feel to your teal cabinets.

Teal is another color we mentioned in our “best color combinations for 2018” due to its vintage 1950s appeal. We love this color in the kitchen because of its old-worldly aesthetics along with the idea of the color being a muted combination between green and blue.


Take a dark wall and brighten it all up with accent chairs that make the room come back to life. Use shades of teal to add an extra dose of bold richness. Doing so brings vibrancy while having dark hues become the staple that brings the room together.

This hue not only reminds us of the 1960s because of its boldness, but it is now becoming the perfect accent hue that brings everything together. For a softer take on this trend consider using it with neutrals the contrast will soften the boldness of it.


Mint is a wonderful pastel hue, it is a mixture of green that brightens a room while still being soft and subtle. Its ability to be the main focus while still flying under the radiator is the perfect hue to accentuate any metallics.

The informal color just got a bit more formal and modern. Pair it with rich darker wooden pieces for that modern aesthetic. Consider having it be an essential addition to the room while still being a softer focus. Doing so will bring the feel of the color while not being overpowering.
