Complementary Colors: Opposites Attract
When filled with colorful art in rich, complementary colors, your home will radiate with pure joie de vivre. Complementary colors are those opposite each other on the color wheel: red and green, blue and orange, etc. Together, they create powerful contrasts and augment each other’s luminosity. These color combinations are especially prevalent in Pop Art, and part of the reason the genre has such a refreshing, humorous and lively feel to it. Artist Lucia Giacani masterfully utilizes this stylistic tool in her Killing Time series. Her perfect use of complementary colors gives her photographs a provocative, vibrant, and striking aesthetic.
Analogous Colors: Harmony in Similarity
Art in softer shades can give any room a gratifying appeal. It creates a subtle interplay between colors, enabling people who see it to relax. Analogous color combinations are made using hues that are close to each other on the color wheel, such as blue and green or red and pink. A simplified tip: if you want to arrange multiple artworks to create an artistic gallery wall, take note of similar color temperatures; put warmer tones together, and cooler colors with each other. The desaturated look of pastel colors makes them especially harmonious.
Primary Colors: Pure and Unadulterated
Artists often define the primary colors as red, yellow, and blue; these being the colors we can mix to create all others. Red stands for passion, blue calms the soul, and yellow provides cheer. Each of these colors appears pure and simple – harness this power with wall art in primary colors. You could also try three pictures hung in a row, each featuring a different primary color. Ideally, you’ll want them to be against a neutral background so that the colors appear fresh and unrestrained, making the room stimulating and bright.
