Green and Blue Colour Combination



Have you ever heard the saying “blue and green should never be seen”? Well this article aims to prove that saying wrong once and for all.When picking colour combinations for the home one of the ways you can do so is via using the colour wheel.

It’s recommended that you either go for opposite colours or those that are next to each other. Well, blue and green happen to be placed next to one and other, and if you select the right shades this colour combination can be a winning one.

Citron and Indigo.

Citron and indigo balance each other out perfectly. It is usually very difficult to incorporate a vibrant and zesty colour with a deep and intriguing one, yet citron and indigo breaks all of the rules. The citron adds the energy and electricity, whilst the indigo brings in the class and sophistication. It is always better to stick to dark accessories when working this colour combination otherwise the indigo will appear too isolated.

Lime and Turquoise.

Lime and turquoise has long been a popular colour combination for those who have a taste for the bold and the slightly eccentric. This colour scheme is refreshing, energising, and full of life. This colour combination is ideal for rooms whereby inspiration and energy are core qualities, such as office spaces and kitchens.

Kelly Green and Blue.

This colour combination is great for those who are looking to add some colour to a traditional style of room. These shades work beautifully when placed against rustic wood furniture pieces. They allude to elements of nature and can create an excellent earthy feel.

Play With Colour Ratios .

And last but not least, this tip can be used for all colour combinations. You don’t need to try and create an even ratio of 50:50 in regards to blue to green. You can use one colour as the dominating force and the other to add more personality through limiting its use. The use of alternate colour chairs in this picture is a great touch.
