How to combine colours

Colour harmony refers to the visually appealing combination of colours that creates a sense of balance.

Key principles of colour harmony

  • Complementary colours: Pairing colours opposite each other on the colour wheel (e.g., blue and orange) creates a striking contrast and visual interest.
  • Analogous colours: Using adjacent colours on the colour wheel (e.g., blue, green, and yellow) creates a smooth, cohesive transition.
  • Triadic colours: Combining three colours equally spaced from each other on the colour wheel (e.g., blue, yellow, and red) creates a balanced and vibrant palette.
  • Split-complementary colours: Pairing a colour with the two colours on either side of its complementary colour (e.g., blue, yellow-green, and orange-red) adds depth and interest.
  • Monochromatic colours: Using different shades and tints of the same colour creates a cohesive and soothing palette.
  • Warm and cool colours: Balancing warm colours (red, orange, yellow) with cool colours (blue, green, purple) creates visual interest and contrast.
  • Colour saturation and brightness: Varying the intensity and lightness of colours creates visual hierarchy and depth.
  • Context and meaning: Considering the emotions and associations of colours in a specific context (e.g., branding, art, or design) helps create effective colour harmony.

By applying these principles, you can create aesthetically pleasing colour combinations.
