Color schemes defined l.jpg

Monochromatic: One color and its tints, tones and shades.

Complementary: two colors directly opposite from one another on the color wheel, such as red and green, or orange-red and blue-green.

Analogous/adjacent Choose a color and the two colors that lie on either side of it to assemble the scheme. Example: blue, blue-purple and blue-green to complete the scheme.

Neutral/achromatic: white, gray, brown and black used in a room.

Accented neutral: Neutral color with an accent of one other hue.

Triad: Three colors that are equally distanced on the color wheel. An example of this would be orange, green, and purple or red, yellow, and blue.
