What Houzz contributors are saying:
Red and GreenPlay with variations. It’s hard to think of red and green together without thinking of Christmas, but they can indeed work in a modern palette. This is particularly true when the two are presented as tints, tones and shades of the unadulterated forms. In this bedroom, a lovely jewel box look has been achieved because the green has been offered as mint, olive and moss, and its opposite, red, shows up as cherry, rouge and coral. The addition of a neutral in the form of the white headboard, bedspread and lampshade help break up the concentration of so much red and green.10 Color Combos You Never Thought Would Work
If you plan on painting just one wall in your bedroom, choose the headboard wall. It helps anchor the bed in the space and can act as an eye-catching background to a beautiful headboard, such as the one featured here. I typically don’t decorate with shades of red and green, because it’s all too easy to end up with a Christmas-y vibe, but because this red has a coral cast and the greens used have a good amount of yellow or blue in them, it doesn’t feel like it’s decorated for the holidays.Wall paint: Embroidered Flower, Benjamin Moore
3. Pink and green. Why does this perennially preppy combo strike such a chord? Well, think about nature: pink flowers atop green stems, blooming from shrubbery, surrounded by foliage. If you want to make pink and green look less Lilly Pulitzer, try layering two or three saturated, slightly dirty shades of each color, as in this bedroom.
