For a color combo that screams bold originality, nothing beats this cool black and yellow bedroom. Working with black can make a room too dark and somber, but in this case, the bright pops of yellow bring in the magic of the sun. A sense of humor is obvious with the black and yellow bike acting as a faux headboard. To soften the overall look, the back wall is painted a lighter gray and the two throw pillows on the bed are beige and white, and black, grey and rust.


2. White on White

While this bedroom look is not for everyone, there is something elegantly pristine about a white-on-white color combo. The use of a textured off-white throw on the bed, a white shag rug on the floor and a two-toned cream antique-looking side table all add layers and depth, so the room doesn’t look flat. Pops of green with a plant and the pink of the flowers offer up a gentle warmth that make it a welcoming space.

36. Purple and White

Learn More

As you can see, this bold bedroom features that wonderful purple color. The color is so bold that it can stand on its own and doesn’t need much else.
