20 Creative Color Schemes Inspired By The Color Wheel
An empty room is a blank canvas for any decorator to fill with color, pattern and texture. While decorators have a handle on color schemes that work, choosing color schemes can be a scary proposition for others. Fear not, there are a few easy guidelines to follow that will have anyone picking colors like a pro. There are five basic color schemes and a myriad of options from which to draw upon for inspiration and we will review each of them.
The monochromatic color scheme is perhaps the easiest to understand. It is the use of any one tint, hue or shade of a single color. This scheme can be either very relaxing or very dramatic depending on the color chosen and the various shades or tints incorporated. For a bit of drama consider the use of a warm hue such as red or orange. For a cooler feel try blues or greens. Grays, whites and creams are fabulous options for neutral schemes.
