Ocher, a caramel yellowish tone, similar in color to mustard but more brownish, is one of the most commonly used colors in interiors: it is warm, cozy, elegantly dresses the walls and, as we will see below, can be combined very well, both in walls and decoration.

So if you are planning 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 decoration, and very well.

We started.

White and ocher

White will always be on these lists of «matching colors» because it is a neutral color and always goes well with the rest.

In this case, in the case of ocher, the white color of ocher stands out even more.

Black and ocher

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, dramatic and calmer. They are two colors with a lot of presence that go great together.

Move on.

Gray and ocher

Gray is the last of the neutrals we’ll see on this list, but it also 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 and now remain neutral on the side.

Pink and ocher

The two are warm, but they are opposites. Pink is born 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. So ocher and pink can be easily combined, if you like this combination, of course.

Light blue and ocher

One warm and the other cold, that’s why they complement each other so well, because blue gives ocher what it doesn’t have, and ocher gives blue.

Dark blue and ocher

It’s still blue and it’s still cool, but navy blue has a lot more presence and elegance than light blue, so interiors painted and decorated with it have more personality. Combined with ocher, we add a warm and cozy touch that the dark blue color lacks and creates a balanced color palette.

Green and ocher

As with blue, so with green, which is a cool tone and complements so well with ocher because each brings to the other what it doesn’t have.

Brown and ocher

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 see another color.

Beige and ocher

It could be said that ocher and beige are the same color, but one with much less saturation than the other. Beige is brighter, calmer and brighter, and ocher is stronger and has a higher level of saturation, but they combine very well.

Earthy and ocher tones

As you can imagine, all earth tones, whether soft like the one we see above these lines or darker, like the browns we’ve seen before, combine with ocher, creating an extremely pleasing palette.

Red and ocher

Everything from the Maisons du Monde

In the statement, I say red because ocher goes well with all reddish tones. That is, from the standard red to the color of terracotta or tiles, through other softer or stronger tones such as burgundy. It’s a very strong combination, 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 also important to know if this color combines well with it or not, and in this case it does.

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 in mind another who does not appear on this list, leave a comment that I will be happy to answer.

Now you can also see the colors that best combine with mustard, which strongly resembles ocher, or if you are going to paint the living room, these 40 color combinations for the living room or these 40 color combinations for the bedroom.
