If you don’t have your hand raised, I get it. This color is bold. It’s risky, especially for those of us that are hoping to sell our painted furniture pieces. For me, this color takes me, outside, to the coast, to the deep blue water of the ocean. It’s provides a memory from a past vacation or better yet, helps me looks forward to the next trip to the beach. I know it sounds like a cliche but some colors really do “speak” to me. This combination is energetic but also soothing at the same time.
Um, yuck. No thanks, right?
I thought I’d share one of my go-to’s for choosing color combinations. The color wheel shows complimentary and analogous combinations. The color wheel provides a visual for color context and color harmony. Both of these are needed to please the eye, otherwise, we see boring or chaos…two things I prefer to avoid.
