4 Color Ideas For An Elegant Space

From warm blush to mysterious navy, there is a perfect hue for everybody


We've said it a million times before—the easiest way to transform your space is with a fresh coat of paint. However, it's not enough to just splash your walls with any color, you also have to pick which shades will make your haven stylish and timeless. If you're looking for ideas, we've listed down four hues ranging from light pastels that are dreamy to dark and brooding navy. Take your pick below:

The best thing about gray is that it straddles both warm and cool undertones, so it matches almost anything. Dress it up with monochrome pieces for a more grown-up feel or mix it with punches of color for a more playful look. 

For those who are drawn to darker shades, navy blue is a great choice as it is not as stark or harsh as black. Decorate the space with pieces in neutral colors and wood finishes for a royal vibe. 

If you're into dainty hues and Victorian-inspired colors, look no further than pastel pink or blush. Since it has hints of red and warm tones, it goes great with copper accessories and marble finishes. 

Love the outdoors? Deep forest green walls will surely remind you of the beauty of nature, even when you're inside the comforts of your home. Complement it with Boho-inspired pieces for a strong Coachella vibe.
