History of ColorColors are often symbolic.Let’s talk about what role color has played in different times in history.Slide3

In China…Yellow has religious significance and is still the Imperial color today!Slide4

In Greece and Rome…Red was believed to have protective powers.Purple was restricted to use by nobility.Slide5

The EgyptiansAdorned walls of tombs and temples with brilliant colors of blue, tangerine, and green.Slide6

In the Italian Renaissance…Colors were vibrant reds, greens, golds and blues.Slide7

In the Rococo period…Tastes became very feminine, colors became less vibrant.Slide8

In 18th Century England…There was great elegance. Colors were rich, showing a strong Chinese influence in the use of red and gold.Slide9

During the Victorian era…There was great Eclecticism known for it’s abundance of “things”.Colors were mostly dull reds, greens, browns, and mauves.Slide10

In the Early 20th Century… Colors were Monochromatic. There were sleek surfaces and strong contrasts with black, gray, silver, brown, beige and white.Slide11

In the 1920’s…All-white interiors became popular which gave way to delicate pastels with bright accents.Slide12

In the 1950’s..Light colors were preferred.However, American interest turned to Mexico and a shift to bright colors with bright contrasts.Slide13

And in the 1990’s…Regal gold, blue, and red were used. Southwestern remained popular and Victorian was being revived.Ivy league also becomes popular with forest greens and cranberry reds.Slide14

What has the overall trend for color been in the past 10-15 years?Slide15

ColorColor can alter the appearance of form and space.Color can affect our performance abilities and change our moods.Slide17

The Color WheelThe color wheel is a basic tool we use when working with colors. It is based on the standard color theory known as Brewster/Prang.

In addition to the traditional color wheel, there are two color systems that are useful when more detailed colors are required.

The Munsell system:

Has 5 principles hues and 5 intermediate hues. A numbering system helps designers identify the exact hue they need.

The Ostwald system:

Made from pairs of complementary colors. The color circle has twenty-four hues.Slide18

The Color WheelThere are 12 hues in the spectrum of color.They are divided into three categories…Slide19

The Primary ColorsRed, Yellow, and BlueThese colors cannot be combined from mixing any colors together.Slide20

The Secondary ColorsGreen, violet, and orangeMade by combining the Primary colors together.Slide22

The Tertiary ColorsYellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, red-orange, yellow-orange.Made by combining a primary and a secondary hue.

Named by the Primary color first.Slide24

Color Schemes

There are certain groups of colors that work together very well…they might be referred to as Color Schemes.

There are some basic color schemes that have worked well for many years…

Color Scheme: A combination of colors selected for a room design in order to create a mood or set a tone.

Provides guidelines for designing successfully with color.

Color schemes look best when one color dominatesSlide25

MonochromaticA color scheme using one color, and tints, tones and shades of that color.Slide26

TriadA color scheme using three colors equal distance from each other on the color wheel.Slide31

ComplimentaryA color scheme using colors opposite each other on the color wheel.

Note again that even though the colors are dulled red and green, they are still complementary.Slide35

Double ComplimentaryA Color scheme using two sets of complimentary colors.Slide40

Split ComplimentaryA color scheme using one color, and the colors on either side of it’s compliment.Slide41

AnalogousA color scheme using colors next to each other on the color wheel (3-5 colors).

Note that even though these are very bright hues of 5 colors next to each other on the color wheel, that they are analogous, even though they are bright.Slide43

NeutralA color scheme using whites, blacks, grays and beiges, tans, etc.Slide48

Accented NeutralsA variation of a neutral theme is an ACCENTED NEUTRAL. The neutral room is embellished with a splash of color(s). Slide53

Warm ColorsColors on the warm side of the spectrum…yellow-green to red

Advances- makes objects look larger, warmer, closer than they really areSlide60

Cool ColorsColors on the cool side of the spectrum…green to red-violet

Receding- objects seems smaller and farther awaySlide64

TriadThree colors that are equal distance apart on the color wheel.Slide67

DiadUsing two colors that are two colors apart on the color wheelEx. Red and orangeSlide70

TetradA contrast of four or more colors on the wheelSlide71
