Color Scheme: Triadic -special variant of the split-complementary color scheme, with the equal distance between all colors. Colors Used: Purple, Orange, Green Feelings: This low key use of color helps not only bring calmer feelings but the brightness of the purple bring vibrancy to the space as well as defines the use of seating.
Split complementary: The colors used in this living room are yellow green, violet and red. Split complementary schemes use 1 base color and 2 secondary colors. This gives 1 warm and 2 cool colors or vise versa depending on the base color you choose. 2 colors are place symmetrically around it on the color wheel. This room gives me the feeling of going back in time and has a vintage feel. It makes me feel old.
