Color in Interior Design – A Range of Possibilities

An interior design color scheme is simply a group of colors that harmonize with each other.  The basic color schemes in interior design are:

Complimentary.  This color scheme uses two colors that are on the opposite side of the color wheel such as red and green or yellow and violet.   Because there is a strong contrast between complimentary colors rooms using this color scheme are bold.  

Split Complimentary.  This scheme is used when one color is combined with the two colors on opposite sides of its complementary color.

Triad.  A triad is accomplished when three colors of equal distance to each other on the color wheel are used.  Red, yellow and blue combine to make a triad color scheme.

Tetrad.  By combining to pairs of complimentary colors a tetrad color scheme is created.

Analogous. Using colors that are next to each other on the color wheel.

Monochromatic. Using the same color with different shades, tints or tones.  Textural interest should be added to monochromatic color schemes to keep them from getting boring.  In addition, a small bit of color added to accessories will enhance a monochromatic color scheme.
