Yellow + Pink

On their own, yellow and pink may be considered soft colors, but turn the gradients up a notch, and they can leave quite a strong impression. This combination may be a bit "loud" for some but you may consider it for your bedroom or private nook.

Lime Green + Aqua + Teal

These three colors add warmth to any room. It would be best to try this combination first with minor home accessories to keep your senses from becoming too overwhelmed.

Aqua + Pink

You can be both playful and grown-up when you put these two colors together. Aqua is reminiscent of beautiful sea water while pink could remind you of seashells scattered on the sand. Consider this color for your mini library or reading corner at home.

Yellow + Teal

Combining the color of the sun and the sea gives your room an unexpected sophisticated vibe. Stick to a modern design and choose accessories that go well with the colors, too.
