Color Theory and the Jay Scotts Advantage!
One of the top design tips that business and homeowners need to know is color theory and why Jay Scotts is the perfect product for investing in this theory for your home or business. However, if you’re an interior designer reading this, odds are you’re already very familiar, and we thank you for reading for a quick refresher.
What is Color Theory?
Color theory is a concept that revolves around the way colors interact with each other on the psyche. First, you need a color wheel. This shows all the colors in the general color spectrum, now there are myriads of differences when you include saturation and hue variances, but for the most part, there’s this complete circle.
The concept surrounds the fact that certain colors complement each other and certain colors clash. Colors on the opposite side of the wheel will always contrast well which is why you can see many promotional posters and materials using colors such as blue and orange, black and white, red and green.
How does Color Theory apply to Interior Design and Landscaping?
Color Theory is ideal for its customizability. With these dynamic color schemes, you can create specialized moods and effects on each visitor. Earlier we wrote about what is known as complementary duo-tone, (or colors with two tones) but a number of combinations is limitless.
We are often exposed to variances of these designs based on what the room is supposed to represent. With this increased complexity comes a little bit of homework:
Complementary – Complementary, is about using four colors that are parallel to each other on the color wheel. These are simple colors that benefit well from each other.
Analogous – Contradictory to complementary, analogous are colors that are right next to each other, often in slightly altered shades. The famous poster of the Academy Award winning film Moonlight utilizes this by using Blue, Purple, and Violet.
Triadic – Triadic color schemes stem from tri, meaning three. These are three equally complementing colors that all interact with each other and complement. Yellow, Red, and Blue or Green, Orange, and Purple.
Tetradic – Finally, Tetradic or four complementing colors. These are a little more complex but can create breathtaking results. These are examples such as yellow, red, purple, and cyan. Where you begin splitting colors and finding their more nuanced form.
