Red and The Color Wheel

While there are many brilliant colors to choose from, this month is dedicated to a primary color that packs a punch: red. Whether you love to contrast this hue with green or you want to feature an array of its beautiful tones, these inspiring ideas will show you how to add that pop of color without putting your room on red alert!

This sophisticated and soothing scheme lends itself well to modern spaces. It uses tints and shades of one color, staying within the same column on the color wheel. A monochromatic scheme for red might include a range of tones from cherry to deep wine.

Don’t let the name fool you‒a complementary scheme combines hues that contrast each other. Designers call on complements to add interest and energy, but they’re often best when used in small doses. Found opposite each other on the color wheel, the complement of red is green.

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

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