DIY Home Décor Guide
This Home Décor Guide is to help DIY-ers get ideas on how to decorate for the home.
The Color wheel is made up of 12 colors which are divided into 3 categories. It is very helpful when picking out colors for a room and especially if you want to find out what colors match together.
Visit colorschemedesigner.com to help you choose the right colors for your rooms.
Primary Colors: Red, yellow, and blue.
Secondary Colors: Created when mixing primary colors. Orange, Green, and purple.
Tertiary Colors: Created when a primary color is combined with a secondary color. Yellow-orange, blue-green, and red-violet.
After choosing a primary color using the color wheel, you can now create a color scheme.
Monochromatic: All the colors of a single hue. The single color can be a darker shade to a lighter shade in a single room.
Complementary: These colors are located directly across from each other on the color wheel. This color scheme is used to bring different colors together, and is great to use if you are wanting to paint an accent wall.
Analogous: These colors are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, with one being the dominant color.
Triad: Includes any three colors that are equally spaced on the color wheel (red-orange, yellow-green, blue-violet). In this color scheme, one shade is dominant, another is a secondary color, and the third is an accent color.
Pendant Fixture: lighting that hangs from the ceiling by a long chain or a metal rod. Usually found over a kitchen island or dining room table.
