Complementary colour schemes
Also known as contrasting colour schemes, these are created by combining colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel – red and green, blue and orange, purple and yellow. The two colours enhance one another, with each making the other feel more vivid.
Complementary schemes are less easy to get right thanks to their clashing nature, but they can look incredibly striking. The trick is to pick one colour as the main base of your scheme and add the complementary colour in accents.
For example, you could bring a living room with blue walls and curtains to life with a smattering of orange cushions and accessories.
