Knowing the basics of color composition can not only give you the mood you want for your home, but apply them at other times in your life, isn’t that amazing? Today’s post will talk about it! We will present the basic concepts of composition from the color circle and some compositions that are trends in decoration and also the ideals of Feng-Shui, which are still widely used today in some decorations.
The color circle is a disc that is divided into 12 colors (the 3 primary colors, 3 secondary colors and 6 tertiary colors), which is a simplified version of the color spectrum perceived by the human eye. This disc is one of the simplest and easiest elements to consult when it comes to combining colors for decoration. It is from it that we can create color palettes without fear of making mistakes.

The vivid colors of the chromatic circle not only help us choose colors for happy and vibrant environments, it must be remembered that colors appear on this disc in a “pure” form, but there are a multitude of shades to explore that can be used. Therefore, a tool that can be used in conjunction with the color circle is the tone scale, which shows the variation of colors in various shades. But how to identify the possibilities of combinations that the color circle offers? Take a look at the definitions below!
The combination of primary colors works well for decoration, whether in its more vibrant shades, which bring a funnier and fun touch to the environment, or the lighter shades in the cuter candy colors. In this sense, whether using the three colors or just two, the primary colors create incredible and joyful environments. Secondary colors are obtained by mixing two primary colors.
These are the classic mixtures that children learn in school, where blue and yellow turn green; yellow and red becomes orange; and red and blue becomes purple. These three new colors appear to complete the color circle. The combination of secondary colors can also be done in a variety of ways, and just like primary colors, they make for happier and fun mixes in the environment. Match the colors you want, let your imagination fly and you will be amazed.
