Transcript

  • 1. Neutral Colors
    • Neutral colors can give a restful effect
    • Neutrals are often found in nature
    • Used alone, neutrals can be boring, so important to include texture and different shades or colors
    • Dark neutrals often need white as part of the scheme, or the use of glossy materials
    • Give a tailored or serious look
  • 2.  
  • 3.  
  • 4.
    • Neutrals, but with a single bright color added
  • 5. MONOCHROMATIC
    • Uses one (mono) main color (chromatic)
    • Tends to be a soothing or restful type of color scheme
    • Usually uses a neutral color as well, and wood tones or other accents, as well
    • To prevent boredom, variety in the main color, and texture variety are important

  • 11. ANALOGOUS COLOR SCHEMES
    • Close to each other (or analogous) on the color wheel
    • Can be soft and soothing or cheerful and exciting– depending on the value of the colors selected
    • Can consist of two, or up to several, hues
    • Examples:
        • aqua and blue (spa colors)
        • Ochre yellow and terra-cotta (tuscan theme)
  • 12.  
  • 13.  
  • 14.
    • This is only analogous if we just count the blue and green—otherwise it is something else!

  • 21. COMPLEMENTARY COLOR SCHEMES
    • Opposite from each other on color wheel
    • In strong chroma, complementary schemes are exciting (or overwhelming!)
    • Can be soft and interesting, if used in weaker chroma values (less bright tones), such as terra-cotta plus greyed blue, rather than orange and bright blue
    • Or use one color in strong chroma and one in softer chroma (bright green and soft pink, instead of red and green)
