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.
Powder blue scatter cushions pep up the look of the plain grey sofa upholstery, and tie it with the blue element of the nearby dining set.
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.
Scandinavian style chairs in blue, green, and white finishes encircle a round dining table with a copper support leg, which echoes the orange accent tone that started in the lounge.
The green dining chair matches with mint green base cabinets across the kitchen wall.
A blue fruit bowl throws down another pop of colour on the table.
Green and copper coloured dining room pendant lights dangle above. The orange tone carries through into a wine storage unit in the kitchen.
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.
In the games room, a nifty coffee table design pops up out of the floor.
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.
Back out in the open plan living room, a classy marbled hearth and a textured tv wall counteract the louder elements in the space.
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.
The second bedroom scheme in the home is just as loud.
A unique rug dots colour through the study.

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.
Bam! A red kitchen wakes up the senses, with a solid green kitchen island to amp up its effect.
A cactus is placed to match the green theme of the central island and bar stools.
Yellow tiles flash through the home entryway like a bolt of lighting out of the blue. Pegboard panels texturise tall white cabinet doors.
A bushy indoor plant visually separates the home entryway from the cosy lounge. A mysterious deep blue portiere fills an arched doorway.
Inside a green bedroom, the shining effect of two beautiful copper bedroom pendant lights is doubled by a pair of elliptical wall mirrors.
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.
An orange accent stripe is painted where the walls meet the ceiling, and a matching trim defines glass doors.
