Re: Paint colors - HELP!


This is an old thread but, for anyone concerned about colors...

She asked what to paint the walls. She said she has a maroon (red) sofa and a blue rug. The missing color is... yellow. Why? Because red/yellow/blue are the primary colors and because red/yellow/blue is one of the few triadic color schemes. She went with blue, which works because of the blue rug. She only needs to add yellows and reds in the rooms somehow.

If you're ever wondering about color, anyone can do this. All you need is a $3 color chart, which you can pick up at any art store (or get it free online). If you're wondering about what colors match, the color that matches the one you like is directly opposite to it on the color chart. The other colors that match it can be found by making triangles, squares and rectangles on the same chart -all the colors on the ends of those triangles/squares/rectangles match.

Re: Paint colors - HELP!


I personally prefer creamy color and creamy eggshell white probably will enhance the beauties with some white grey rugs. Bedroom and bathroom should be considered same color to keep the natural looking and perfect matching.
