Add some pizzazz to your home with these unusual colour combinations that work to create bold and beautiful interiors

Are you looking to create unique and bold interiors like no other? One way to do it is by choosing unusual colour combinations. While this may seem a little out of the box to a lot of people, with the right hue and undertones, you can make the even contrasting unusual colour schemes work in home interiors. Read on to find out unusual colour combos that surprisingly look good.

1. Unusual Colour Combinations #1: Earthy Teal and Red

Teal and deep reddish browns are both grounding hues, so it is no surprise that these unusual paint colours can work wonders in home interiors. There are different ways you can use these for the walls in your home interiors. As unusual kitchen colours, opt for teal tiled backsplash and an earthy red on the rest of the walls for an enveloping effect. Lighten up the space with wood furniture and metal accents.

2. Unusual Colour Combinations #2: Orange and Blues

This contrasting pair is one of the more unusual colour schemes for homes. While it may not be for everyone, someone who likes a vintage eclectic style is sure to love it. These unusual paint colours would work brilliantly for a ‘70s inspired graphic pattern for an accent wall. A more subtle way of incorporating these unusual house colours is to choose one to paint the walls and the other as an accent that pops like in artwork or furniture.


3. Unusual Colour Combinations #3: Pinks, Purples and Yellows

Since all the three colours are highly vibrant and saturated, it can be challenging to use them together in home interiors aesthetically. Which is why it makes the list for unusual colour palettes. But a warm pastel yellow or an earthy mustard can form the perfect background for a floral mural design with flowers painted in shades of pinks and purples. You can also use them as unusual front door colours by colour blocking or painting the door in a geometric pattern.

4. Unusual Colour Combinations #4: Multicolour with a White Background

A white base is just what you need to make most unusual colour palettes work. If you’re someone who loves all the colours of the rainbow, why stop at just one or two for your walls? Paint your walls white and create an abstract rainbow using your favourite unusual colour combinations. The trick to making it work is to match the undertones and temperature of all the unusual paint colours you choose. Alternatively, you can design a gallery wall that showcases all these unusual colour palettes in the artwork or as colours of the frames.


5. Unusual Colour Combinations #5: Lime Green and Sunny Yellow

The bright lime green and sunny yellows are unusual house colours due to their bright neon like appearance. But with the right tones and style, it can look chic as unusual kitchen colours or even for the dining room. A wallpaper in gingham pattern with these colours would transform any space into a cheerful and fun corner of the house.

6. Unusual Colours that Go Well Together #6: Grey and Pastels

Give the classic neutral a twist with an unusual grey paint and pastel tones combination. The combination of unusual grey paint with lavender, mint, blush or sunshine yellow can lend to soothing and inviting interiors. You can adapt an unusual gray paint colour with a pastel for nursery, living room, primary bedroom, bathroom or a study.


7. Unusual Colour Combos #8: Sophisticated Grey and Orange

While gray itself isn’t a new colour for modern and contemporary interiors, pairing it with a bold orange is unconventional. The contrast of unusual gray paint colour with orange accents can create visually powerful and stimulating space. Use this combination in industrial style interiors with a unique touch. Choose more muted tones such as warm greige and terracotta for contemporary bohemian or Japandi style spaces.

8. Unusual Colours that Go Well Together #7: Versatile Pinks and Oranges

The underlying red in pink and orange hues makes this combination a powerhouse. Various versions of this unusual paint colours combination cater to all the different styles and the moods of interiors. For an elegant and sensual space use unusual paint colours rust and wine. In a Hollywood glam style room, combine hot pink, sunset orange and classic black and white for an opulent look. Fuchsia and tangerine would set the tone as unusual front door colours for an eclectic home.
