The Art of Decorating with Analogous Colors

Decorating with Analogous ColorsDecorating with analogous colors need not be a challenge.  Just keep in mind this rule of thumb.  Colors that sit adjacent to each other on the color wheel are considered to be analogous colors.

For the purpose of this rendering, reds and  pinks are the focal palette of this color scheme. Add to this, neutral black accessories like lamps, wrought iron details and white wall treatments that provide anchors for these bright shades.

Select wall art that picks up hints of the analogous colors in your color scheme and introduces others.  Like today’s featured artistic selection entitled, “Roses on Yellow Table” by Vincent Farrell.  You’ll notice that this piece includes touches of red and fuchsia which partner well with the interior decor.  The bold splashes of goldenrod, cobalt, lavender and sky in the painting add a pop of interest to a room when decorating with analogous colors.
