Whether you’re looking for something light, dark, bold or monochromatic, all of the choices can be overwhelming. We’re here to help with some basics of using colour in design or using a colour theme to help with your choices.
Basics of Using Colour in Design
- Don’t get caught up by considering in too many choices. Start with the colours you like and build your palette from there.
- If you’re looking to create some interest, using opposites in varying intensities (light or dark) can create a visually appealing space, without being too dramatic
- Adjacent or monochromatic hues used in various intensities are interesting and fail-safe
- Looking to keep it straightforward, pick a colour you have seen that appeals to you – this may be in neutrals, whites or lights.
