Understaning Colour

The color wheel can help you in choosing a colour scheme for a room or your entire home by visually illustrating various color harmonies.
  • Monochromatic Colours

    A monochromatic colour scheme uses shades of the same colour (colour swatch). It creates a sophisticated and elegant look.

  • Analogous

    An analogous colour scheme uses consecutive colors on the color wheel (yellow, yellow-orange, orange) to create a pleasing palette.

  • Complementary

    A complementary colour scheme is two colors that oppose each other on the color wheel. Complementary colors enhance one another, adding interest and energy to the decor.

  • Split Complement

    A split complement colour scheme combines hues to the left or right of its complement on the colour wheel.

  • Triad

    Triad colour schemes include any three colours that are equally spaced on the colour wheel (red-orange, yellow-green, blue-violet). When a triad colour scheme is used, one shade is dominant, another is a secondary colour, and the third is an accent color.
