harmonious COLOUR scheme


COLOUR SCHEMES are when you have any tints and tones of colours in a 90 degree part of the colour wheel eg. Red violet, red, red orange.

If you select a colour, then use the colours either side on the colour wheel you have harmony.

Harmonious colours bring a sense of calm with no contrasting surprises

select colours of different shades and tints and tones within the 90 degrees of the colour wheel to add interest.

Add beiges to complement the harmony

When artworks use 90 degrees of the colour wheel to select the scheme, they work well in a room with neutral greys, whites, and black with pops of colours derived from the artwork.

Alternatively, you can use harmonious colours on all surfaces, creating more impact.
