Refreshing Color Palettes To Relax Your Senses

You'll always be in a good mood when your surroundings are as calm as these spaces

If you like to create serene spaces using light colors, white isn't your only option. Here are other color schemes to try: 

1. Robins egg blue and white 

This no-fail, relaxing combination is cool to the eyes. It works best in seaside-inspired interiors, like this bedroom in a condo unit designed by interior designer Van Acuña-Solaña.

2. Yellow along with other colors

Yellow is practically a neutral now. This pale, banana shade dressing up the walls of this bedroom acts as a relatively blank canvas to let the patterned beddings shine. 

3. Sage green and white

Sage green livens up plain walls in a subdued way. Feel free to complement this shade with dark wooden furniture to give the room some warmth. 

4. Light pink and gray

Tone down the sweetness of pink by combining it with gray, just like what interior designer Van Acuña-Solaña did in this condo unit. 

5. Gray and white

If you're a lover of neutral colors, go for this combination. Gray prevents white from being too clinical, while white keeps gray from looking too moody. Throw in some subtle patterns to keep the space from looking drab.
