But really though, it got me thinking about different color schemes I've seen lately and different colors that we've used around the house (and analyzing what I would want to change if I had the time). Emerald green, lavender, neutrals, blues...all of these colors have been swirling through my head.
We did a "Name the type of color scheme" exercise in class and I thought it would be fun to go through a few on my own...take a guess at a few of these (and there maybe more than one answer too).
Color scheme: Analogous (colors next to each other on the color wheel)
Blues, greens, and yellows throughout make this analogous. Neutral sofas, neutral walls.
We also started to talk about how color makes you feel when used in a space and what kind of mood/tone it sets for the room.
Color scheme: Neutrals
You're really only seeing one side of the room here, but lots of neutrals being used. The walls, the pillows, the chairs...all neutral and very soothing.
Take a look at this bedroom before and after from Better Homes and Gardens:
Before: Achromatic - all whites with some touches of blue on the valance
And the after...gorgeous, eclectic...
I'm thinking complimentary on the color scheme...blue and orangey/pink. I know I love this after - how pretty and effortless it looks. That headboard and sconce - love them.
This next image is also neutral with splashes of pink...

And while we're talking about color, how about the Lee Jofa ads? Are they not one of the most eye catching ads out there right now?
And from eye-catching we go to neutral and equally fabulous...
