Burgundy, Pink, Gold, Cream Scheme

  • The color scheme: Burgundy, pink, gold, and cream.

The combination of burgundy and pink creates a strong visual that immediately attracts the eye’s attention, but the intensity of the two colors is calmed and neutralized by the presence of more neutral and natural colors like gold and cream. This color scheme can be easily created in bedrooms and living rooms using paint, pillows, blankets, and window treatments.

  • The color scheme: Red, turquoise, and bright green.

Turquoise and bright green are common spring colors that can’t help but make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation. Combining these colors with red accent pieces, such as window treatments, pillows, or artwork, can help create an interesting visual contrast. This color scheme is both bright and energetic, making it ideal for bedrooms, studies, kitchens, and other places where you may need a boost throughout the day.

Royal Blue and Yellow Scheme

  • The color scheme: Royal blue and yellow

This color scheme is perfect when it comes to creating both a spring-inspired look and a nautical look, also making it work for year-round use in homes near the coast, lakes, or rivers. An easy way to create this look is to mix and match blue and yellow window treatments and bedding with the opposing color wall paint or wallpaper. Choose black or gray accent pieces and small decorative flourishes to create a rich and elegant atmosphere throughout your room or your entire home.

Whether your blue and yellow color scheme is strictly spring-inspired or influenced by your home’s proximity to water, the window treatments listed above are a great way to bring the relevant colors into your home and accentuate the décor and accent pieces needed to pull off this look. For a nautical-themed room, you can’t go wrong with a few maritime pieces of décor like artwork, decorative seashells, or anchor motifs. To make the look more spring-influenced, eschew the nautical décor and instead place plants and colorful DIY projects throughout the room.

Neutrals and Bold Scheme

  • The color scheme: Neutral colors with a bold accent wall or bold accent pieces


Although a room or home that’s mostly decorated with neutral colors may sound boring, the results can be dramatic and striking when that scheme is paired with a few strategically placed splashes of bold color, such as accent walls, brightly colored furniture, and dramatic window coverings. Finding neutral color décor is easy, as there’s no shortage of accent pieces and bedding available in colors like cream, white, tan, beige, and gold.

The first four of the window treatments listed above represent beautiful neutral colors that can fit with virtually any color scheme and pair beautifully with bold accent pieces and walls, while the last choice represents a bold color option if you choose to save your splash of color for your window treatments. Whichever option you choose, know that this color scheme is highly versatile and subjective, and that means you’ll have tons of freedom to experiment with the best colors and patterns for your home and your décor. And because the most common colors for both blinds and shades are neutral colors like white, gray, tan, and cream, there is no shortage of options to choose from, whether you prefer Roman Shades, aluminum mini blinds, or anything in between.
