Color lovers, this one is for you, especially if you find it tough to decide between two different hues when buying decorative accessories and tabletop items. While the colorblock trend has been around for awhile, I’m excited about a new modified version of this motif that’s been popping up in the home goods market.

The “split color” look, which features clean lines and generally even, half-and-half distribution of two colors on one piece, has been working its way onto blankets, pillow covers, vases, and more, and I’m absolutely digging it. This is a great way to get the best of both worlds when it come to color. Shop 10 of our favorite pics featuring this kind of design below. No matter whether you lean toward neutrals or pastels, there’s something for everyone in this mix!

Amboy Knit Throw Blanket

I’ve been swooning over everything in Amber Lewis’s line for Anthropologie since day one, and this blanket—where I first spotted the split color design trend—is one of my faves. Use it at the end of the bed or thrown over the back of a sofa or an accent chair. The fringed border adds lots of sophistication, and depending on how you fold it, it can also just look like it’s a single color, if you want to try it that way.

Door Mat

If you’re looking for a slight variation on the split color trend, this doormat, with its almost checkered look, will be right up your alley. The simple pattern is available in three different color schemes, but I love the tonal, Scandi vibes of the gray and black combo shown above.
