They can be paired together

Despite each of the colors being so bold and distinct, they actually create an unexpected harmony when used together. You can pair up three colors and assign one as the main accent while the others act as complementing shades in smaller doses. For instance, you can use Peach Echo for you walls as the main accent, while Buttercup and Green Flash can be used for your accessories to achieve a good balance.
