"Color can soothe and excite, create harmony and cause shock. From it you can expect miracles, but it can also cause a catastrophe, "Jacques Vienot.

The color wheel is always right?

Who and why invented the color wheel

The concept of the color wheel was introduced by poet and thinker IV Goethe in the late 18th century. In its circle included six colors, 3 of which were in the major (blue, yellow and red) and three additional (violet, green, orange).

Selection of color depends on the area of ​​a premise, its purpose, style, light conditions and personal preferences

A century later, the circle has been improved by the German physicist and chemist Wilhelm Oswald. Its color representation includes 24 colors.

Diversify the interior can be achieved by varying intensity. To you received an order razbelennye and blackout shades, but remember the rule - the bigger the surface, the less should be saturated color.

  1. complementary scheme. Based on a combination of complementary colors. What we get as a result? Bright and modern interior in the style of pop art and fusion. If such a concept you like, remember that the two colors of the same intensity can only exist on the base and accent Rights.

Do you have this selection shortcomings theory of colors? I think there is! And they derive from the virtues. The color wheel offers a relatively simple scheme, involving the use of 1-4 colors, but always whether such amount is sufficient to produce a harmonious interior?

To take on the color wheel, I advise those who are creating around the interior of the existing elements (furniture, decoration). It will help you to choose the flooring to the old wallpaper, tiles for the kitchen and curtains to your favorite couch.

Not all interiors are subject to the rules of the color wheel

Seasons

The theory of the seasons belongs to American colorists K.Dzheksonu and G.Vattermanu. In studying the work of the artists they drew attention to the harmony and integrity of the paintings. But earlier artists only draw from nature, trying to convey the full range of colors of nature.

The interior, created based on the concept of the seasons, is to use colors that appear naturally in a particular time of year.

Each season contains all the colors, they only differ in richness and warmth. Spring and autumn are leaning towards warm colors with dominant yellow and red. Spring palette is different from the fall more tender and light tones, the latest I can rightly be called a more earthy.

Winter and summer dominate cool tones. Summer is characterized by blue, winter - blue. Cool shades of summer seem a little faded, and winter sound clear and shrill.

Spring colors evoke a joyful and light mood. Due to the soft tones such combinations are often used in children's rooms and a small living room.

Textiles of the interior should be thin, smooth and drapes easily. In the matter of finishing the preference is to give a matte material with a fine structure.

Spring is in the details

If you prefer natural materials and wood chosen, even if it has a yellowish or slightly reddish tint inherent in softwood.

Metals should have a golden sheen, and stones - fine-grained structure and a warm tone.

Unfortunately, this theory has a flaw. A lot of combinations and combinations requires the development of color flair.

"The picture of nature" method

If you are in the bins is not a designer diploma, the following scheme for you. This method does not have the drawbacks of the color wheel, and "seasons".

All that is required - the image of a natural phenomenon, it may be a flower, an animal, a full landscape. No matter how many colors may be in the picture, they will all be in harmony with each other. Nature does not make mistakes, there are no accidents!
