Caramel and similar colours can work wonders when paired with black accents, but become softer when woodwork is included. To lift the warmth of this colour, pair it with brownish-red or even hints of green.


Blue’s most popular colour at present is indigo. Other top-ranking choices include sky blue, classic blue, denim blue, moody blue, sea blue and watery blue.

Indigo can be the perfect hue for a bedroom, creating a serene atmosphere.

Many people cast blue as a cool colour, but indigo can be warm and rich. If you are after a classic look then mix with some softer colours, but for a modern look go bright and bold. You can include wooden furniture, alongside bright orange or red accents. Include varied textiles such as blankets or cushions.

In fourth place is the colour group brown, with tan up there on top. Brown is naturally warming because its base is orange yellow and with other popular autumnal shades being chocolate brown, rich black brown and taupe, this colour palette can be the perfect option.

Tan can cosy up surroundings, especially when paired with white and neutral tones. It is the perfect base colour and can be paired with a wide array of accent colours.


Grey is the fifth most popular colour group, with three specific shades ranked, including dark grey, grey haze and stone. The colour stone is the most popular choice for homeowners, as a neutral shade that provides a calm base.

Make sure to include a grey that has beige, yellow or red undertones, then add in some splashes of yellow, orange, red and neutrals.
