Nothing beats a stunning red accent. Most especially stunning when you pair it up with glossy, azure tones. The combination is just ethereal. The warmth of chili red and the cool of the aqua blue play beautifully together. The fiery orange wall + the pool is too good to be true.

Red-Orange should be a color scheme on everyone’s pinterest board. Don’t be afraid to mix things up with a little bright yellow! These two powerhouses combined make for a killer combination that isn’t too overwhelming at all. Afraid that tans and yellows make things a bit drab? The orange-red will kick that problem out to the curb.

Decking your space out with succulents spruces things up, and is a great way to incorporate nature into the mix.

Peach and Blue

Bringing these two together was the best thing anyone could have ever done. The addition of white stripes makes it all the more chic! Taking cool blue and warm peach together makes for the perfect pool side haven.


For something with more flare, turquoise never ceases to bring vibrancy, and adding a dash of cobalt blue for a more powerful contrast to the peach and white stripes is a statement no one will be quick to forget.
