Interior painting color schemes
A color scheme is any set of colors that work together to create a visually appealing layout. The following are suggested combinations,but the possible combinations are limitless.
Complementary colors are located opposite each other on the color wheel. Each color brings out the richness in the other. When using complementary colors,one color should be subtle and the other color should be more dominant. For example,an intense,dark violet should be paired with a medium to light yellow.
Split Complementary Colors
Split complementary colors offer a wild and daring color palette. Select a main color. Next,find the complementary color and select colors from each side of the complementary color. These colors are excellent when layering a faux finish.
Related colors are located next to each other on the color wheel. These colors produce a less contrasting effect than complementary colors. For example,a dark blue-green combined with a light blue can give the feeling of floating in a blue lagoon.
Monochromatic colors are colors with the same hue but different tones,values and saturation. For example,a paint swatch card has several different values of one color. Using two or more monochromatic colors creates a stylish and pleasant look.
