Color Crush: Forest Green and Salmon Pink

Lately, I’ve been trying to think of fun color combinations that I can integrate into our master bedroom now and future home. Color combinations that aren’t trendy, per se, and aren’t too bold to scare Tristan away. We have mostly neutrals in our bedroom:

Most of my colored items are kelly green and gold/leopard, which have been infused all over the living room. Other than that, I have a great coral blanket and some old salmon Euro shams similar to these … I know I will always love green… Eureka! I was reminded of a house I pinned which combined forest green with salmon pink (via Dustjacket Attic).

Once I started looking over my Pins, I found a few more instances of this fun combination (Pixlis, Dwell):Forest Green and Salmon 2 - Torie and Tristan Forest Green and Salmon 3 - Torie and Tristan

In bedrooms (via Coco & Kelley):Forest Green and Salmon 8 - Torie and Tristan Forest Green and Salmon 9 - Torie and Tristan

One can imagine what a bathroom might look like (both via Painted Furniture Online):

An office (via simplyme091909.blogspot.com):Forest Green and Salmon 12 - Torie and Tristan

A kitchen (Gah! There’s no chance Tristan would ever go for this) via Elements of Style:

Swatch 2 (via Pinterest):

This is probably a realistic level of color for our room (via Shelter Interior Design):

I think that by adding this one custom accent pillow from Etsy ($26) and printing out a few new art prints, this look can be ours:

Get this look:

  • White Euro Shams with Black Trim – $30 each from Ebay (I made mine using white velvet Euro shams from IKEA and ironing on black ribbon tape – they’ve lasted 3 years)
  • Salmon and White Euro Sham – $22 each from Etsy
  • Coral/Salmon Blanket – Similar throw $51.97 from Bellacor (mine is old from Pier 1)
  • Accent pillow – $26 from Etsy
  • glassybaby – $44 in Leprechaun
  • Topiary – Image from Tuckernuck (sold out); similar here ($49.99)
  • Art – Pinned from Kelly Wearstler My Vibe My Tumblr

What do you think of my inspiration board? It might take me awhile to track down my pieces from storage, but nothing makes me more excited than re-working things I already have.

      1. I totally know what you mean. I am the same with my room too. But in think you should keep the neutral wall paint and just try to add colors with less permanent pieces. Change your bedding will create a drastic change in your room and also you could try adding some curtains.
