3 simple rules to using a color wheel

Feel free to combine colors with these simple rules in mind:

Rule 2 - Any 2 colors side by side, such as Red and Pink.
Rule 3 - Any 3 colors in a quadrant, side by side or adjacent.

  • Rule 1: Any two colors directly across
  • Rule 2: Any 2 colors side by side
  • Rule 3: Any 3 colors in a quadrant
  • Rule 3: Any 3 colors in a quadrant

Understanding how to mix and match will expand your existing wardrobe. Find fresh ideas and inspiration to use what you already have.
