Whole House Color Scheme: Brown, Turquoise & Red

Using bold jewel tones is a great way to create a color palette. Turquoise, emerald, and deep red look great together, and they create a low-key but friendly mood. Check out some pictures:

The turquoise walls are perfect against the chocolate sofa, accented with red and gold pillows.

This kitchen picks up the red and chocolate colors from the living room but brightens them up for the social kitchen space.

I love this shower curtain, which incorporates all the colors in the other two rooms but takes on a light-hearted personality of its own.
