In working to make a comfortable and stylish home, I usually select color combinations that just feel right. Unbeknownst to me, those color combinations aren’t just selections that randomly happen to look good together; they are colors that complement one another.
Complementary colors are those that are opposite on the color wheel. When you combine a color with its complement, you are enhancing each shade to its best. For example, if you want a blue room to pop, you would use orange as a complementary shade.
One way to see which colors work best together is to notice what’s happening outside in nature. Complementary colors are abundant in the world around us.
