When it comes to flower arranging, we know you’ve got what it takes. But we also know that you’re always learning ways to improve your skills and make drop-dead gorgeous arrangements. That’s where the flower color wheel comes in: When you’re deciding on color combinations for your beautiful floral designs, the color wheel can be your best friend. So, here are a few ways to use it when planning and designing your arrangements.
Color Wheel Basics
We’re not going to dive too deep into color theory here, but it’s a fascinating subject. The color wheel is a simple way to determine how colors work together:
- Hues opposite each other (complementary colors) provide high contrast and high impact.
- Colors next to each other (analogous colors) can have a soothing effect.
- Three colors spaced evenly on the color wheel (triadic colors) also provide high contrast, but less so than the complementary color combination.
- You can also come up with some exciting looks by combining one color with the two colors adjacent to its complement (split-complementary colors).
