Color Coordination For Your Home Office Aesthetics
May 18, 2021
One of my favorite pastimes is going to Pinterest and looking through hundreds and hundreds of home design ideas. It's a great way to destress for me and a great way to educate myself on the aspects of design and what the current trends are. Having a matching and well-coordinated room in the house is not just eye candy, it makes for a smooth and organized living.
While small clusters and personalization of space are proof of a home being lived in, the peace of mind and clarity that comes from a clean and beautiful space are priceless. Not to mention a great way to be able to have family and visitors over any day, without panicking to make your space acceptably okay whenever it must be done.
I usually start with a color theme when I start redecorating. It makes it easier for me to pick pieces to put in space later on. Not to mention that I enjoy the sense of adventure in having paint mixed and seeing how it would look on your walls. It just gives an otherwise space a stylish and holistic kind of look.
Color coordination is an endeavor to match, arrange and design in a way that colors complement each other in a way that is satisfying and well put together. To make sure that we can achieve this, we should be familiar with the color wheel. A color wheel shows an organization of color hues around a circle that shows how the primary colors, secondary colors, and tertiary colors are affected.
The primary colors consist of red, yellow, and blue. On the other hand, tertiary colors are the colors we get when the primary colors are mixed. For example, orange which is red added to yellow, green which is the mix of blue and yellow, violet which is what happens when you put blue and red together.
Lastly, the six tertiary colors are formed when you mix primary and secondary colors. Few examples of these are red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and red-violet.
There are a few ways that you can use the color wheel so you can hit the mixing and matching and surely never miss. Here are a few ways that you can utilize the color wheel to achieve that:
Complimentary or contrasting combination. In this scheme, you can match one color on the complete opposite side of it in the color wheel. This combination allows for a very energizing ambiance, especially at maximum saturation or darkness.
● Triad combination. This is the combination wherein three (3) colors are equidistant to each other forming the shape of a triangle. This is a very high contrast combination that also preserves harmony. It gives off a vibrant look whatever opacity you choose to have it with.
● Analogous. This combination is achieved when you combine 2 to 5 or 2 to 3 colors beside each other on the color wheel. This creates a very aesthetically pleasing and calming environment. You can opt for a more opaque, muted version of the colors and the effect would be the same.
● Split complementary color combination. This is similar to complementary but the main difference is that the complementary combination creates an equilateral triangle inside the color wheel. On the other hand, split complementary is a bit more obtuse.
You can achieve this combination by combining one primary color and two of the colors which are directly on the left and right side of the complementary color to the primary ones you have chosen.
An example of this is if you chose the primary color, red the opposite of it in the color wheel is green. This is the complementary color for red. The split-complementary color for red is on the left and right side of the green, which is blue-green and yellow-green. The effect of this color is less intense than the complementary combination.
● The tetrad combination. This color combination is achieved with a rectangular shape inside the color wheel. You pick two colors opposite of each other in the wheel and then combine the colors on the left and right sides of each. Thus, creating the rectangular shape in the circle.
● The square combination. As the name implies this is a combination of four colors on equal sides. The colors here create vivid and dynamic effects that are different in tone but still complementary. One example of this combination is red, blue-purple, green, and yellow-orange. You can play with the intensity or opaqueness of the color if the darker ones are too much for your space.
