4 Ways To Incorporate In-Between Colors Into Your Home

These shades deserve their own place in the color wheel!


As beautiful as rich reds, blues, and greens are, single-word hues have never been my favorite. Instead, I'm drawn to in-between colors—those unusual yet interesting ones that other people seem to be afraid of. 

Believe it or not, these risky tints can make a big impact on your decor. They can be a great compromise between neutrals and brights while still being unique—that you'll never get tire of it. If your space needs a bit of color intervention, let these design ideas inspire you to dip your toes in piquant pigments:

Green + Yellow 

Probably the boldest of the bunch, you can use this blended shade of yellow and green to brighten up a space with a lot of white elements. To avoid overdoing it, make sure you break up the color with different wooden pieces too.

Brown + Orange 

If lime green is too daring, try going for rust as it is the safest choice. Since it has a lot of brown undertones, you can easily pair it with other warm colors to create a cozy palette. Consider mixing it in with hints of beige for a softer look.

Gray + Blue

Another great color combination to try is a faint mix of blue and gray. It creates a modern neutral palette that has enough cool tones to serve as a great base for statement pieces. This is also a perfect choice if you're planning to accessorize with metallic decor.

Yellow + Brown 

If you're trying to ease yourself in on the trend, try experimenting with mustard first. Best paired with gray, it is your best bet if you want to bring a monochrome space to life.
