Ocher, a caramel yellowish tone, similar to the color of mustard, but brown, is one of the most commonly used colors in interiors: it is warm, cozy, dresses the walls with elegance and, as we will see below, can be combined very well, both in walls and decoration .
So if you plan to paint in ocher and want to see how to combine it, stay with me to introduce you to 10 colors that combine with ocher in walls and decorations, and they work really well.
White and ocher
Design and photography From closet to wall
White will always be on these color matching lists because it is a neutral color and always goes well with the rest.
In this case, in the case of ocher, the white color emphasizes the ocher even more.
Black and ocher
The whole set of Leroy Merlin
Another color that is always combined with everyone is black, another one of neutrals, so it also had to be on this list of colors that are combined with ocher.
Unlike white, the palette created by ocher and black is more mature, more dramatic and calmer. They are two colors with a lot of presence that go great together.
Gray and ocher
Gray is the last neutral thing we’ll see on this list, but it had to be. It is a neutral color par excellence with which we can always combine any other color, in this case ocher, which we will always guess.
Let’s look at more colors that combine with ocher leaving neutrals now aside.
Pink and ocher
The two are warm, but they are opposites. Pink comes from red and ocher from yellow, so these are two complementary colors and, as we saw in this article where I explained the color wheel, complementary colors are always combined. Therefore, ocher and pink can be easily combined, if you like this combination, of course.
Light blue and ocher
One warm and the other cold, which is why they complement each other so well, because blue gives ocher what it doesn’t have, and ocher makes it blue.
Navy blue and ocher
It is still blue and still cold, but dark blue has much more presence and elegance than light blue, so the interior painted and decorated has more personality. In combination with the ocher color, we add a warm and pleasant touch that the dark blue color lacks and creates a balanced color palette.

As with blue, this also happens with green, which is a cool tone and so well complemented with ocher, because each contributes to the other what it does not have.
Brown and ocher colors

Ocher is brown with a lot of yellow pigmentation, so it is normal that when combined with brown on the walls or decoration, as we see in the room above these ocher and brown lines, it looks good.
Let’s look at another color.
Beige and ocher
It could be said that ocher and beige are the same color, but with much less saturation than the other. Beige is brighter, calmer and brighter, and ocher is more powerful and has a higher level of saturation, but they combine perfectly.
Earthy and ocher tones
Dulux photography and colors
As you can imagine, all earth tones, whether soft like the one we see above these lines or darker, like the browns we’ve already seen, combine with ocher, creating an extremely pleasing palette.
Red and ocher
All the conjunto from Maisons du Monde
I say red in the statement because ocher goes great with all reddish tones. From standard red to terracotta or tile color, through other softer or stronger tones, such as burgundy. It is a combination with great strength, so if you apply it, I advise you to add one of two colors in small doses.
Wood and ocher

I also like to finish these lists by adding wood, as long as it combines well with the color of the list, since there is a lot of wood in the house, and it is important to know if this color combines well with it or not, and in this case it is.
There are other colors that combine with ocher in decoration, but the ones we’ve seen are some of the most popular and used. Of course, if you have something else in mind that is not on this list, leave a comment that I will be happy to answer.
