Choose Paint Colors Like a Pro
Here's our guide to everything you need to know to understand color in your home, from tints to trends, and everything in-between.
It’s important to start with the basics of color theory. Look at a color wheel. First, identify the primary colors of red, blue, and yellow. Next, look for secondary colors that are blends of the primary shades: orange, green, and violet. Finally, see how the tertiary colors are further blends: yellow-orange, blue-violet.
Complementary colors are located on opposite sides of the wheel (green and red). When combined, each makes the other appear more intense.
Colors that are side-by-side on the wheel are analogous. They typically look good together.
