Objective 3.03: Implement color schemes in housing interiors.
Color Schemes color schemes. Groups of colors that work well together are called color schemes. Color schemes are selected for a room design in order to create a mood or set a tone. Pleasing color schemes can be created based on the color wheel. We will learn about 6 basic color schemes.
1. Monochromatic The simplest color scheme because it uses a single hue from the color wheel. Variation is achieved by changing the value and/or intensity of the hue.
Monochromatic color schemes have a soothing effect. They can, however, become boring.
Monochromatic schemes can make a room appear larger.
2. Analogous A color scheme using 3-5 colors next to each other on the color wheel. Works best if you choose one dominate color and use smaller amounts of the others. Since analogous colors are related, they blend together well.
Colors have a “temperature” and are considered either warm or cool.
Warm Colors Reds, yellows, and oranges Warm colors advance and make walls appear closer to you than they really are. Warm colors make a space appear smaller.
Cool Colors Blues, violets, and greens. Cool colors recede and make walls seem farther away than they really are. Cool colors make a space appear larger.
When choosing color schemes consider… Selecting your favorite color Adding to an established color scheme Selecting colors based on the feelings or mood you wish to create Evaluating parts of the room that cannot be changed and choosing colors that will complement existing furnishings Selecting colors that complement a particular work of art Select colors that complement a chosen fabric or wallpaper
