Choosing Colors that “Pop”
June 6, 2011 § Leave a comment
It may seem obvious, but opposites attract. And when it comes to color, opposites attract attention! These bright orange pansies are the perfect complement to the rich azure blue ceramic basket on the front step of this home. Orange and blue are opposites on the color wheel and, because of that, they give each other a vibrant visual energy that draws your eye. Cheerful, welcoming, fun — everything you want your house to say.
The other opposites? Red with green and purple with yellow.
If you’re planning your garden, planting some annuals in pots, or painting some accent furniture for the yard or the porch, think about what colors will pop off each other. Talk about curb appeal… you’ll certainly attract some attention from the road.
