How to match colours

To know how to match colours, you’ll need get yourself a colour wheel. Using this wheel, you can make the colour schemes below:

  1. Complementary scheme
    This is a colour scheme primarily aimed at creating contrast. To get this scheme, you simply have to select colours that are located opposite each other on the colour wheel.
  2. Triad scheme
    This colour scheme is created by three colour families that are evenly spaced around the colour wheel (creating a triangle). With these combinations, you’ll make a vibrant, yet harmonious scheme.
  3. Analogous scheme
    The analogous scheme uses colours from three or more families located right next to each other on the colour wheel. With this combination, you’ll create a very comfortable and warm feel, inspired by nature.
  4. Tetradic scheme
    This colour scheme is made up of four colours: one of them is dominant, two of them are complementary and the other creates a colour accent. In this scheme, four colour families are used, creating very lively combinations.

Now that you know how to match colours, you’re definitely ready to create unique spaces that foster harmony and awaken our senses, all at the same time.
