2/10 Green and aqua bedroom
You'll feel all at sea - in a good way - with this bedroom colour scheme. Ocean-inspired tones of green and aqua combine with rich petrol blue for a dramatic, coastal feel.
3/10 Pastel blue and green vintage living room
You don't have to make a loud statement with a blue and green colour scheme; calming shades of mint and aqua create vintage charm in this living room.
4/10 Wood hallway with green and blue accents
Nature never gets it wrong so take inspiration from the great outdoors and use a simple colour palette in your hallway of earthy wood tones with sky blue and leafy green accents.
5/10 Dark green and blue home office
Dark inky colours and rich kingfisher blue make moody partners for accents of jade and emerald green in this home office, whilst the polished gloss of the lacquered desk instantly lifts the scheme.
6/10 Calming navy and aqua bedroom
A soothing navy blue headboard is the perfect colour for a relaxing bedroom, especially when teamed with a fresh aqua throw.
7/10 Fresh blue and green home office
The calm, sea-green wallpaper and soft sky-blue door of this home office are close enough in tone to create a relaxed, harmonious space, perfect for quiet contemplation.
8/10 Pastel blue and green dining room
Choose tones from the pastel end of the colour spectrum to create a soft, pretty room scheme. Soothing shades of baby blue in this dining room create a fresh, summer feel when teamed with a floaty aqua tablecloth and crisp white chairs.
9/10 Rich blue and green dining room cupboard
If you fancy making a bold colour statement in your dining room, try painting the inside of a cupboard a contrasting colour to the outside; it'll make crockery and glassware really stand out.
10/10 Soft green and blue garden shed
Blue and green isn't just a colour scheme for indoors - it works brilliantly in the garden, so why not reclaim your shed, paint it mint green and sky blue, then add some classic wicker furniture for the ultimate retreat at the end of your garden.
