Explore Yellow Complementary and more!

Complimentary Colors for Home Decorating ~ "Life is a great big canvas...Throw all the color on it you can"... The complementary color scheme is made of two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel.

Achillea 'Gold Plate' and Verbena bonariensis in late summer border. Herbaceous perennial. Biennial colour contrast combination border. September yellow violet lilac

I chose this picture because it exemplifies complimentary colors. Purple and yellow are complimentary colors. The background shows how complementary colors can be mixed to desaturate each other, and create grays. I thought that this picture was a good example of the concepts conveyed in the videos.

Purple water lilies are my favorite flowers... they look like there's fire inside, with the elegant purple on the tips. Might want them in my bouquet somehow ;)
