6 Things You Need To Know About Color Combinations
Read this before choosing paint colors and buying furniture
Coming up with a color scheme is exciting—it's probably one of the things you look forward to when painting and furnishing a room. But colors aren’t only seen on walls—they are present in all elements in the room, like your furniture and accessories. Therefore, their colors must all work well together.
Before you do that, get to know the color wheel a little bit more. Let's take a deeper look at each of the hues in the color wheel:
1. A hue is a pure color, excluding black and white.
2. Tints are pure colors mixed with white.
3. Tones are pure colors mixed with gray.
4. Shades are pure colors mixed with black.
Based on this, you can see which colors work well with what. Aside from complementary colors (colors that are opposite the color wheel), here are other colors that go well together:
5. Analogous Colors
These are three hues that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, like green, yellow green, and yellow and yellow orange, yellow and green.
When a single hue is combined with its shades and tints, you get monochromatic colors. In this living room, different shades and tints of brown are combined with some whites thrown in.
