Create interest with contrasting colors. On the color wheel, contrasting colors are opposite from one another and while it doesn’t seem like these colors would go well together, they can. In fact, when you choose the right contrasting colors, your rooms have energy and balance. Once you understand how to use the colors together, it’s easy. All you need is a color wheel and a general idea of the colors you want to use.
At SCC Kitchen Bath & Home we start with the design. Planning the space, adding the elements and then pull it all together with the color. Sometimes the cabinets are the grounding point; sometimes it is the tile or fixtures. Whatever the colors are we make them work with the entire space and adjoining rooms to bring it all together so the entire space is inviting and interesting when you enter the room.
Home decorating schemes are worked out by means of various color harmonies. The three most used harmonies for decorating with color are monochromatic/dominant, analogous and complementary harmonies.
In monochromatic or dominant color palette, different tones of the same color are used, as in a room done in beige, tan, and brown.
Analogous color scheme is one that uses two or more consecutive colors on the color wheel, such as blue, blue-green, green.
Both monochromatic and analogous harmonies may prove lacking in an interesting contrast of color qualities.
Complementary color scheme is obtained by combining a color and its complement on the opposite side of the color wheel, as red and green.
Thought for the day:
Past belief has been that a room should progress from dark floors to somewhat lighter walls to lighter ceiling. But it is becoming popular to have the ceiling – even in period decoration – a paler tint of the wall color rather than white. When the stark white is blended, the rooms look larger and flow very nicely.
