…With Denise, of Bellis Studios!
It quietly called to me!
When you come across a color you just love and want to build a color palette around it, it’s helpful to refer to a color wheel. Locate your starting color on the wheel. Orchid Hush is a tint, it has quite a bit of white in it. It’s located near the center of the wheel.
You can look directly across the wheel to find your colors complement. Complementary colors tend to have a lot of contrast when placed next to each other. In this case, a pale yellow would be my complement and would work great with Orchid Hush!
I decided to push it a little further and see what other color combos I could come up with.
A triad color relationship is when three hues are equally positioned on the color wheel.
An analogous color relationship is when colors are located adjacent to each other on the color wheel.
A monochromatic color relationship is when colors are the same shade or tint variations of the same hue.
Choosing your colors based on their relationship to each other on the color wheel will guarantee harmony. Isn’t harmony what we want in all of our relationships?!
