A Rich, Unexpected Color Trio You Haven't Tried Yet

It's a combination you're likely to see more in kids' rooms than adult living areas; since, in my experience, these are pretty popular favorite colors for the 12-and-under set. But it checks all the right boxes to be considered for a spot in your (grown-up) home.

The vibrant trinity of green, blue and purple is inspired by nature–it's a union you'd see in an artichoke or a succulent. And it adheres perfectly to color theory–the three shades are next to each other on the color wheel, which means they're proven analogous complements.

With the rainbow of shades available in each hue–green could be olive or mint, purple might be pale lavender or rich eggplant–there's a ton of variety in this trio, too. Why not try it on for size in a room at home? Here are some examples...
