What’s Your Scheme?
By Nancy April 17th, 2013
There are several types of color schemes: complementary, monochromatic, split complementary, achromatic, analogous… definitions that you probably don’t think about when thinking about designing a space. But we do.
Following are definitions of common color schemes and some examples that we found on the internet.
Monochromatic: Using any shade, tint, or tone of one color.

Achromatic: A colorless scheme using blacks, whites, and grays. I think this is a beautifully done space!
Complementary: Combining a shade, tint, or tone of one color with that of the opposite hue on the color wheel.
