Of course I think any colors done right can look good together but there are just some that automatically bring out the good in each other. So if you consider yourself “color-challenged” these are some simple color schemes to go with.
To achieve a monocrhromatic look is really simple. You only have to pick one color!! You can pick different tints or shades of the color but it must be just that one color. So with blue you can do light blue or dark blues together but to really achieve the look you would leave out blue-greens and blue-violets. The key with using one color is to really mix it up with pattern and texture. It has a chance to be a little boring but it can also really make a room look unified if you do it right.
This is done by using three or four colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. This Red,Yellow, Orange room is a great example. This makes a room really flow together. Just as the colors look good together on the color wheel they will look good together in your room.
There are many other types of color schemes but these three are used the most and very easy to remember. Before picking out colors for a room don’t just think about the walls or just the fabrics but think how it will all work together!
