If you’re not confident about putting colours together, the colour wheel is a handy tool that will take some of the guess-work out of colour combinations. By displaying colours in relation to one another, the colour wheel helps you to match colours. There are three main types of colour combinations:
Colours that sit side-by-side on the colour wheel, for example blue and green create a serene combination.
Colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel, like red and green complement each other. If you want to make a statement and stand out, opt for a complementary colour scheme.
Three colours evenly spaced around the colour wheel can create a vibrant, colourful combination: it’s best to use one colour as your main highlight, and the other colours as accents.
