Primary Colors – Blue, Red, Yellow 

The coldness of the blue color greatly “silences” the heat of the remaining two primary colors – fiery red and sunny yellow. By combining these three primary hues, all the other colors of the spectrum are created. For example, the union of blue and red brings purple into this colorful world, while blue and yellow create a sight for sore eyes – a green hue.

Complementary Pair – Blue and Orange 

The orange color is made by combining red and yellow. This warm hue highlights and complements the cool hue of the Sky. Let’s recall the aesthetic effect of a terracotta vase on a blue tablecloth, pillows in the peach color on a dark blue blanket. The colors blue and orange are a complementary pair – opposites that attract and bring each other into balance, thus creating dynamic and active indoor and outdoor spaces.
