Color theory is something we’ve always implemented here at The Decorative Touch for a long time, so we were thrilled to see a recent House Beautiful article about opposite color schemes. Photos like these can make anybody complimentary!
The chairs above, by Jeffrey Bilhuber, contrast kumquat with indigo, which is almost opposite on the color wheel. Note that the indigo is a little less vibrant than the kumquat; it would have been too bold otherwise.

The seating area below, by Melissa Warner, balances vibrant color with a more neutral sofa. When it comes to color, neutrals are the pause that refreshes.
The Hamptons cottage below contrasts orange with blue. The blue is more subtle than the orange, enabling the quilt to really pop like the piece of art it is.
