Decoration and furniture can bring home great colour, but the beautiful colour scheme plays a finishing touch effect. No fear, you can try using creative colour to add home style. Let's review several guidelines, so that you will not miss out. The following five basic colour schemes will provide inspiration to create a multi-colour home!



The monochromatic colour scheme is perhaps the easiest to understand. It is about the use of any one tint, hue or shade of a single colour. Depending on the selection of colour and tint or brightness matching, the tone can be simple, or dramatic. If you prefer colourful, you can choose warm colours, such as red or orange. Feeling fresh and clean, you can consider cold shades of blue or green. Wondering to create simple and generous, you can select grey, white or beige.


Similar Colour

Select of any tint, hue or shade of a single colour. Colour can create a colourful and harmonious feeling. However, do not use more than five colors, which would disrupt the visual and cause chaos space. The easy colour method is to select three to four of your favorite, and decide which main colours and which is matching colour. For example, if you select the yellow and green, you can make use of the orange-yellow, yellow, yellow-green and green for matching.

Complimentary Scheme

A complimentary scheme is use the colour, which found opposite each other and 180 degrees on the colour wheel. This colour scheme is easy to use and brings harmonious and soothing feeling to your rooms. Pick two your favourite different colour and build your scheme from there. Expand the palettes by combining lightness or darkness, to increase the feeling of depth and personality. If you use green and red or blue and yellow, then you should add white to make it vibrant and cheerful feel.


Split Complementary

First select one colour on the colour wheel. Then, pick two contrast colours on both sides. For example, the blue-green complementary color is orange and red. Similarly, hue and lightness can be used.


Triad Complementary

To find three kinds of mutual balance colour need to select the colour in triangle ways which is opposite and complimentary colours. For example, do you need a blue as a base, then red and yellow are complementary colours of the triangle opposite. This combination of three colours is able to create more vivid sense of balance. You can create dramatic colour of soft, warm, or cool depending on how you mix the colour.
