When developing new drapery collections, we take into consideration the direction paint and flooring colours are taking and ensure your colourations are working together.
If you are starting with a bare room or existing colours, walls and floors are a perfect place to start. Colour takes on what we call “hue” which can be green / red / blue, for example, so a great decorating tip is to collect your paint chips, flooring samples and drapery swatches so they overlap each other. This will ensure your “hues” are compatible.
If you are wanting to use colour to create style and appeal for your room, it is helpful to consult a colour wheel.
In colour theory, colours that create an aesthetic feeling together commonly appear together in logical combinations on a colour wheel.
A Monochromatic colour scheme can be created by using colours that are different shades of the same colour, for example light blue, indigo & and navy.
An Analogous colour scheme can be created by using colours that are next to each other on the wheel, for example, green and blue.
A Complementary colour scheme can be created by using colours that are opposite to each other on the colour wheel, for example blue and orange.
