Choose Wisely: Colors
A planned arrangement of color is called a color scheme.
Monochromatic means one color. This scheme is the easiest to understand and the simplest to work with. It consists of one color and its different values.
When using this color scheme, add interest to a room by adding pops of color throughout the room with accessories and artwork. This scheme is often balanced and simple for those who don’t want too many colors in a space.
Any two colors directly across from each other on the color wheel, such as, green and red.
This scheme creates a contrast that can be vibrant and exciting or soothing and relaxing, depending on what values of the colors you use.
This color scheme consists of three colors rather than two. With this scheme, you work with a color and the two colors on either side of its true complement. You might paint your walls a shade of orange and accent with its split complements blue-purple and blue-green.
The analogous color scheme is similar to the monochromatic where you choose a color and the two colors adjacent to it on either side. Stay within similar hues on either end of the color you have selected.
