Red and Green Scheme
This dynamic duo isn’t exactly new or fresh, but there’s something special about the pairing. There’s a certain nostalgia that is created when placing these two tones together, however more than that, there’s an obvious reason these hues were paired together in the first place.
The complimentary color tones (technically speaking, crimson and emerald) are just naturally drawn towards the other, take a look at the color wheel…
Using Red and Green Year-Round
We place complimentary colors together all the time – blue/orange, yellow/purple – so why do we steer clear from the natural draw of red/green? Take a look at a few spaces that have defied the odds (so to speak) and paired this classically Christmas duo together.
I personally love them all – what do you think?
