Veering away from the gothic Victorian colors, Edwardian colors are fresh and light, with an informal feel. Predominant colors include pastels like blues, lilacs, greens, yellows, and grays; while patterns are feminine, with flowers and floral designs. Fabrics with darker colors like dark green are often complemented with cream walls. For doors, ceilings, and paneling, color schemes are lighter and softer. Dining rooms have the richest hues (red, gold, and yellow); while hallways are painted green, blue, and dark gold.
