Paint Colour Combinations

When you have worked out your base colour there are two simple colour combinations that will get you started when selecting your accessories - Complementary Colours and Analogous Colours.

If you want an interior that is going to give a "punch" go for a complementary colour.

On your colour wheel a complementary colour is the colour directly opposite the one you have chosen as your base colour. Green and red are a classic complementary colour pairing.

If subtlety is more your idea of an interior, stick with three colours side by side on the colour wheel – this is called a analogous colour combination.

Deep Water, Hi-C Blue and Lagoon Teal are a perfect analogous colour combination for a calm beachside home. Three colours side by side mean harmony, no matter what the depth of colour is.
