ANAL­O­GOUS

An anal­o­gous colour scheme is one that com­prises colours that are ad­ja­cent to each other on the colour wheel. It is most pleas­ing to the eye and will al­ways give a har­mo­nious look. Choose one as the dom­i­nant colour and the other one as ac­cents.

COM­PLE­MEN­TARY

Com­ple­men­tary colours are colours that are op­po­site each other on the colour wheel. Pair com­ple­men­tary colours to­gether to cre­ate a high con­trast, eye-catch­ing en­sem­ble.

MONOCHRO­MATIC

A monochro­matic colour scheme con­sists of dif­fer­ent shades of one sin­gle colour. Al­ways pair a colour with a greyed-out ver­sion, lest it ap­pears too over­whelm­ing.
