Choosing House Painting Colors

Posted 02-04-2011 at 07:58 AM by housepaintingny (House Painting & Staining)

When choosing paint colors to paint your house or office it can be a daunting task. There are 3 general groups of paint schemes:
  • Monochromatic schemes are based on one hue, which varies in value (lightness and darkness), and saturation (the amount of color). An example of this is a pale blue with a pure blue and dark blue.

  • Complementary schemes are based on opposing colors.
