Colour schemes may be selected by evaluating the colour relationships as they appear on the colour wheel. The colour wheel displays an arrangement of colours, starting with red, yellow, and blue – being the primaries. All other colours are produced from mixing these primaries in varying ratios; shades are produced by adding white or black to colour mixes.
Colour Temperature, where colours are selected based on our reactions/responses to certain colours in the following ways:
WARM COLOURS tend to advance toward you, giving an impression of closeness and comfort. Such colours are found at the ‘RED’ end of the spectrum, with ‘REDS’ being the warmest.
COOL COLOURS tend to recede away from you, giving an impression of coolness and spaciousness. Such colours are found at the ‘BLUE’ end of the spectrum.
If you want to play with colour and get just the right shade for your room or area, choose the colour temperature that suits your persona and arrange your scheme in one of the following ways:
COLOUR HARMONIES – choose colours that similar or adjacent to each other on the colour wheel.
COLOUR MONOCHROMES – choose tints or shades of the same colour by mixing white or black.
COLOUR COMPLIMENTARIES – choose colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel to produce contrasts.
