Don’t let the name fool you—a complementary scheme combines contrasting hues. A little goes a long way when working with these color pairs, which are great for adding interest and energy to a room. Found opposite each other on the color wheel, the complement of purple is yellow.

Harmonious and interesting, split-complementary colors will give your room just enough contrast. To find the split complement of purple, look to the left and right of its complement, yellow. In the case of purple, the split-complementary scheme would include yellow-green and yellow-orange.

Perhaps one of the most pleasing palettes, analogous colors reside right next to each other on the color wheel. For example, a purple analogous color scheme includes shades of blue-purple and red-purple. Since they share a common component, these hues always look good together.
