So, here's the good news. You already know your sexiest interior design color. You may not quite recognize it yet, but you do know it. So let's dig into your psyche and find it.
Now that you have a good handle on pure color (the primary, secondary and tertiary colors of the rainbow), tints, and shades, you're ready to find your sexiest color. The following exercise will allow you to create an interior decorating color scheme based on the color that resonates most deeply with you. And, yep, we're back to our interior design color wheel.
Let's design your room's sexy color palette:
Great. You've now selected either a shade or tint of your favorite pure color as your new sexy color. This will serve as the base for your sexy interior design color scheme. Refer to part three of this series to reacquaint yourself with the sexy properties of shades and tints.
Now let's put together a basic analogous interior color palette. In the world of color, analogous means colors that are side-by-side on the color wheel.
Look at your new sexy color on our interior decorating color wheel above. Now, pick any three or four colors (tints or shades, depending on what you've selected as your sexy color) that are side-by-side and that include your sexy color. You've now created your analogous color palette. Analogous color palettes create gorgeous sexy spaces. A great example of an analogous color palette can be found on the concept board in Room Design Online™'s Virtual Room Planner™ Portfolio on our home page.
Love your sexy color so much that you can't bear to share? Consider a monochromatic color palette. A monochromatic color palette uses the tints, shades and hues associated with your sexy color at various levels of intensity. In essence, you would select the slice of pie of our color wheel that includes your sexy color. Then if you want to add a bit of pop, use your sexy color's complementary color for accessories or a small piece of furniture. Your sexy color's complementary color is located directly across the color wheel. For example, the complementary color of blue is orange. The complementary shade of forest green is burgundy. The complementary tint of lavender is mint green.
