It’s been a while since I’ve made my last post. I am about 1/2 way through my 2nd semester in the Interior Design Program and have kept busy.

A recent assignment I had in my color theory class allowed us to experiment with various color schemes: Complementary, Split Complementary, Double Split complementary, Triad and Diad color schemes. We took those color schemes and played with the colors, I designed over 30 rooms. After we had found our color scheme we then took those colors and placed them in our 1 point perspective rooms with full saturation. Then, using those same colors we designed rooms with the same color scheme and designed one adding shade, tint, tone, analogous (adding grey) and the color’s complement to the color scheme.

The Challenge we had to face was being able to use the color schemes and making the space livable. Color was greatly manipulated in my case. We selected the ten rooms we felt were the most livable/ the walls were well decorated (colored). I then began to add simple shapes to create a slight idea of how the room would be decorated and properly incorporate the color scheme.

Let’s play a little game: See if you can guess the color schemes and which images are, fully saturated, Shaded, tinted, toned and which ones are complementary. If you are correct, I might consider a prize of some sort.
