What is the perfect pairing to cobalt blue, sage green, deep red, and creamy white? It’s Better Homes & GardensColor of the Year “Canyon Ridge,” a terracotta-inspired pink that is the perfect pop of color for both those who usually stick to neutral tones as well as those who like to add a bit of zest into their interior design.

Better Homes & Gardens describes Canyon Ridge as “a subtle spin on terracotta,” adding, “it skews more sunbaked clay than cayenne pepper for a near-neutral ideal on walls.”

It’s a tone pulled directly from the desert sunset, which makes it a great mate for other natural tones one may find in that landscape. But BHG Style and Design Director Jessica Thomas stated in a press release that she also loves Canyon Ridge partnered with blue.

“Cobalt has a vibrancy that makes this classic pairing feel modern,” she says. “Rustic rooms may call for darker denim blue accents. For traditional decor, make it navy.”

But Canyon Ridge has proven itself to be one of those colors that works with almost any other hue.

“Canyon Ridge would also be serene in a bedroom when paired with wood tones and linen bedding,” Thomas continues. And artist and DIY Expert Brittni Mehlhoff added that “almost any color green would look great with Canyon Ridge, from deeper forest greens and olives to brighter greens as well.”

You can pick up a can of Canyon Ridge at Walmart to incorporate it into your home, either as an accent or on all four walls of a room.
