Get Cozy With These Home Decor Color Combinations

Cozy takes on a totally new meaning with so much time at home this year. The word “cozy” evokes brighter nights, comfortable surroundings, and a peaceful mind. Cozy is easily achievable with a few home decor updates, and these color combinations are must-haves for luxuriously relaxing spaces all year-round.

Color experts recommend choosing complementary hues for your home décor, such as a cool and a warm or neutral with similar undertones. Another helpful room color tip that design professionals rely on is the 60-30-10 rule — 60% is the main color, 30% is a secondary color, and 10% acts as an accent. This rule brings balance and depth to a room. Ready to transform your space into a peaceful sanctuary with cozy wall art? Read on.

Blue & Yellow

Cozy colors don’t have to be monotonous but they should have a calming effect. America’s favorite color, blue, is the perfect anchor for your wall art palette. If you like a more-is-more Grandmillenial trend, use an updated traditional navy blue for the room’s main color. Golden yellows keep the tone from being too somber or heavy as well as adding warmth.

Benjamin Moore’s 2021 color of the year, Aegean Teal, a mid-tone blend of blue and green is a beautiful shade for walls and décor textiles. Add saffron as a secondary color for balance. This palette works for wall art and home decor trends like Minimalist Modern, Bohemian, Rustic Farmhouse, and more.

Neutral Tones

Neutral tones -  like Benjamin Moore’s Cloud Nine, Sherwin Williams’ Pure White, and Whisper from Dunn-Edwards - are easy and trend-forward choices for cozy home décor. Complement white walls with natural light that offers mood-boosting benefits and biophilic elements like potted plants and fibrous and cedar accents. Warm terracotta and wood tones convey cozy with an apres-ski or spa twist.
