Creating Daring Decor With Contrasting Colour Schemes
Forget faded colour schemes, come revel in hot red and orange accented decor thats smashed up against lime green, turquoise, yellow, powder blue and pink hero furniture pieces. Each of these four modern home interiors have raucous colour running between expanses of neutral tones, to air out the playful notes. A spray of natural greenery grows here and there, to add a homey feel and texture. There is also texture at play in material choices, with ribbed glass elements, raw brickwork walls, terrazzo and perforated metal. Get ready to feast your eyes on a joyous journey around spaces jam-packed with daring stand out details.

The first riot of colour comes to us from Estoril, Portugal. A satsuma modern coffee table demands to be noticed in the centre of a cosy living room. A lime green accent chair and pink lounge chair kick up the contrast around the furniture centrepiece. A pebble grey sectional sofa cools down the lounge arrangement, and creates breathing space between it and a colourful dining area behind.
Low slung Scandinavian furniture creates a laid-back look. A narrow cylindrical wood burner makes the room look and feel toasty. A smooth white wall has been floated in front of a raw brickwork feature that brings depth to the brightly decorated room. The swing arm wall lamp there is the Flos Mod 265 style lamp.
A blue fruit bowl throws down another pop of colour on the table.
Coloured cabinet fronts create a big impact in the small kitchen.

The second colourful creation were looking at is a red and green feast of accent pieces. This living room causes the eye to track around every furniture piece and soft furnishing choice in the room, from green accent chair to red side table to multicoloured cushions and throws. A chrome floor lamp pulls in with the cooling grey elements in the room.
A modern wall sconce duo scale the wall beside two gaming chairs that are upholstered in contrasting colours. Large poster art adds a playful and creative element. A daybed is tucked within a bank a storage units and a turquoise window seat offers another spot to lounge.
Red and monochrome kitchen bar stools sit at a stone peninsula, whilst a more conventional dining table is set by the window.
The red and green colour story continues in the master. An eye catching bedroom pendant light competes for attention.

Red and green revellers dwell in home number three, where colourful panels peer through textured glass to brighten the living room. A round coffee table, scatter cushion and rug bring in golden yellow accents.
A bushy indoor plant visually separates the home entryway from the cosy lounge. A mysterious deep blue portiere fills an arched doorway.
The bathroom is white with a squeeze of zest. A juicy orange vessel basin tops a modern bathroom vanity, and orange wall hooks cross the white tile wall.
Smart black light tracks keep the colours in the room looking their brightest. Shelf lights feed a healthy collection of indoor plants.
The orange dining furniture fizzes against the blue kitchen cabinets.
The red bedroom is cooled by grey terrazzo flooring and heavy blue window drapes.
