'It's the Color of the Moment' — How to Build Your Home's Color Scheme Around Rich, Earthy Maroon


When it comes to colors that go with yellow, a lovely, grounding tone is maroon. This combination, in fact, sparks a sense of creativity and excitement. The bright cheeriness of yellow contrasts against the depth of maroon, and you get a well-balanced interior.


A timeless neutral, gray is the easiest color to pair any other shade with. From the bold red to the soft pink, gray offers a lovely backdrop to make any color shine. Perhaps when looking for colors that go with light gray, consider the deep maroon, as the two tones can wonderfully offset each other.


Maroon has plenty of company when it comes to colors go with blue. Pairing these tones together can create a versatile palette. With navy blue and maroon, you can design more grounded interiors. A more grand combo would be royal blue, and for a calm interior, consider light blue.


'I am a huge fan of pairing dusty pinks, corals, brick and cinnamon colors together,' says Nicole Dohmen, founder of Atelier ND. 'For the perfect combo, ensure they have the same warm undertones. In this project, I used the peach-colored vinyl wallpaper and combined it with the dark brick-colored linen curtains.'


Since many colors go with olive green or sage green, this tone becomes a lovely secondary tone to any space. Consider painting the joinery in maroon, so that the color blends into the architecture of the home instead of standing out or overbearing the scheme. To add a pop, consider an olive green accent chair or pillows.
