Color Part 2

  1. 1. Neutral Colors <ul><li>Neutral colors can give a restful effect </li></ul><ul><li>Neutrals are often found in nature </li></ul><ul><li>Used alone, neutrals can be boring, so important to include texture and different shades or colors </li></ul><ul><li>Dark neutrals often need white as part of the scheme, or the use of glossy materials </li></ul><ul><li>Give a tailored or serious look </li></ul>
  2. 4. <ul><li>Neutrals, but with a single bright color added </li></ul>
  3. 5. MONOCHROMATIC <ul><li>Uses one (mono) main color (chromatic) </li></ul><ul><li>Tends to be a soothing or restful type of color scheme </li></ul><ul><li>Usually uses a neutral color as well, and wood tones or other accents, as well </li></ul><ul><li>To prevent boredom, variety in the main color, and texture variety are important </li></ul>
  4. 11. ANALOGOUS COLOR SCHEMES <ul><li>Close to each other (or analogous) on the color wheel </li></ul><ul><li>Can be soft and soothing or cheerful and exciting– depending on the value of the colors selected </li></ul><ul><li>Can consist of two, or up to several, hues </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>aqua and blue (spa colors) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ochre yellow and terra-cotta (tuscan theme) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 14. <ul><li>This is only analogous if we just count the blue and green—otherwise it is something else! </li></ul>
  6. 21. COMPLEMENTARY COLOR SCHEMES <ul><li>Opposite from each other on color wheel </li></ul><ul><li>In strong chroma, complementary schemes are exciting (or overwhelming!) </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>Or use one color in strong chroma and one in softer chroma (bright green and soft pink, instead of red and green) </li></ul>
