- How do I decide which colors to use?
- Here's an idea: Use the paint chip. Select several colors from the same paint chip card and paint the ceiling one color, three walls a second color and then the fourth wall as an accent with a different shade. This is a monochromatic scheme.
- How do I determine complementary colors?
- Complementary Colors are those that lie directly across from each other on the color wheel. Reds are enhanced by greens, purples by yellows and oranges by blues. When complements are placed next to each other, they appear more intense. For interiors, bright complementaries must be used with caution because they can become overwhelming and "noisy". When intense or strongly contrasting colors are offset by neutrals, such as taupe or gray, the combination becomes much richer.
