A harmonious combination of colors is a whole science on which the image and wardrobe, home interior and our mood in general depend. Let’s talk about color combinations and how best to work with a color palette.
An impeccable image is made up not only of clothing items and details, but, first of all, of the right combination of colors. And not only in clothes, but also in makeup, and in the choice of accessories. This rule applies to the home interior, and in general to any interiors.
If the colors are combined incorrectly, a feeling of disharmony is created, which is associated not so much with a conscious understanding of the relevance of things as with the physical laws of color perception.
Although the color scheme changes with fashion trends, there is a classic color combination with other colors that will be relevant regardless of fashion trends.
If earlier combinations of two colors were not recommended: red and yellow, green and orange, purple and yellow were banned, and combining these colors was a sign of a lack of taste, today they can be combined with each other, making one of them a bright accent and diluting the bright combination of neutral base shades.
But it is best to combine three, maximum 4 colors in one image or interior. Burgundy and its shades – marsala and cherry coffee – are the color for the bold, self-confident, daring. He looks stern and noble.
All shades of burgundy are combined with purple, navy blue, beige pink and nude, as well as with deaf yellow and green palettes.
Pink can be bright, but it is better to use a more pastel tone, soft pink, beige and pearly pink. It looks more beneficial on tanned skin.
This applies to makeup as well as clothing. These shades are easy to combine with the same deaf, pastel tones of lilac, green, purple and yellow.
Coral pink is close to natural shades, it will look equally good on white and dark skin. You can combine it with yellow, but faded, shades, with gray-blue or white. Versatile coral pink will look great with navy blue or dark brown.
Red and coral red are best combined with white and black – this is the basis of the combination. But with pale beige and terracotta shades, you can also create a decent image. You can also try combining red with blue and purple.
Turquoise, “Atlantis”, “aquamarine”, “sea wave” can be closer to blue, and can be perceived as green. The green tint includes the color “Atlantis” and “Aquamarine”. And to blue – the color of the sea wave and dark turquoise.
Interestingly, these colors are quite versatile despite being bright. They can be combined with white and black, orange, royal blue, rich green, red, purple and pastel shades of yellow.
Blue color is associated with the sky, lightness, freedom. It goes well with white, soft pink, pastel yellow, lilac and dark shades of purple, blue, brown and green.
Navy blue and royal blue, or blueberry color is versatile for all ages and body types. A big plus of blue shades is that they slim and emphasize the contrast of skin and hair and always look expensive in clothes and accessories.
The same rule applies to interiors. You can try to combine blue with green, yellow and pink. The combination with white, red and burgundy is classic and very noble.
Metallic gold, bronze and silver colors are always in trend. They are easy to combine with any shades of any color.
