Double complementary colour scheme
Two pairs of complementary colours whose positions form either a square or rectangle on the colour wheel.

colour scheme 1

orange (tinted) – secondary colour
yellow (tinted) -primary colour
blue (tinted) -primary colour
purple (tinted) -secondary colour

By selecting complementary colours from both the warm and cool side of the colour spectrum, gives maximum contrast and impact whilst drawing inspiration from the Memphis Milano Movement.
This dynamic, punchy colour scheme is stimulating and rejuvenating, at the same time transmitting a warm and tranquil atmosphere.

Triadic colour scheme
Three colours that sit at equal distances apart on the colour wheel.

colour scheme 2 22

blue – primary colour
red (saturated) – primary colour
yellow – primary colour

The bold use of these primary colours creates a high contrasting colour scheme that brings an old retro charm to the space.
It will generate excitement and grab attention giving an uplifting and happy feeling which reduces stress, creating a cheery atmosphere.

Modified triad
The smallest triangle that can be formed on the colour wheel with the fewest spaces.

colour scheme 33

green (tinted) – secondary colour
orange (tinted) – secondary colour
yellow (tinted) – primary colour

This colour scheme has only one space between each colour so the colours are quite restrained. It brings a more soothing retro feel to the space.
The combination of these three colours will radiate a cheerful, uplifting but refreshing and restful atmosphere.
