Speaking technically, analogous colors are three colors next lớn each other on the color wheel, composed of one dominant color (usually a primary or secondary color), then a supporting color (a secondary or tertiary color), and a third color that is either a mix of the two first colors, or an accent color that pops. “A succulent is an example of analogous colors in nature, with its xanh rì, green, and blue/green leaves,” says designer Kristen Peña of K Interiors. “Another is the setting sun with hints of red, orange and yellow.”

Peña's main caution is that you are careful not lớn overdo it. Look lớn nature lớn inspire your palette, and understand that smaller touches of this color scheme, with neutrals as a base, can go a long way. "Selecting shades of the colors that are more muted can be a successful way lớn pull off a design with analogous colors," Peña says. "Also using the analogous colors as the accent colors in an otherwise more neutral palette can be a great way lớn design a space that is not overwhelming with color."

Many designers apply the 60-30-10 rule, which is used ensure a peaceful, visually appealing balance. Under this rule, 60% of your space will be the base color, 30% will be your accent color, and 10% will be you pop of color. To simplify this rule even further, here are the areas in which you should focus on using each of these colors:

60%: Walls, area rugs, large furniture.
30%: Accent chairs, window treatments, bedding, rugs.
10%: Throw pillows, art, accessories.

If you're looking lớn try something a little more daring, shades of purple and red can be extremely sultry and versatile. "What I lượt thích about this color scheme, especially at the moment, is the boho vibe it can create," Peña says. "It’s a nod lớn the style and fashion of the 80s— I love lớn use it in a teen bedroom or hầm out space."

"Who doesn’t love lớn bring the outside in?" Peña says. "This color scheme works overtime in bringing the sunshine, greenery and happiness into a living space. Using this color scheme in a main space or even a bedroom promotes smiles and good times. I’m sure of it."
