The Colour Wheel in Decorating

I've been into colour theory lately and I've started studying as much as I can the colour families and how they are used. I will try to write some posts in the near future experimenting in room design and decor with the different ways to use the colour wheel.

In the colour wheel we have the 3 primary colours: RED, YELLOW and BLUE.
The secondary colours are the ones formed by combining to primary colours: ORANGE, VIOLET, GREEN.
Finally, the tertiary colours are formed by combining  a primary colour  with a secondary one.

With the colour wheel in your mind you can understand what works well and how you can combine them in a room.

We will experiment with all the combinations in the next posts.

Stay inspired!
