Color Matters

Who says color doesn't matter? Of course no one who reads hue, because we all love color here, but I wanted to show you JUST how much color matters, in particular when you use colors in conjunction with one another.

Let's have a look see shall we; Which rectangle displays the lighter shade of orange?

Well if you said the one on the bottom then you're wrong, but if you said the one on're wrong too!

Both rectangles are the exact same hue, but depending on the color combination the eye can be tricked.

Am I the only one who finds this amazing??? Maybe so, but it does go to show you that when combining colors EVERY COLOR MATTERS. I hope this week we've spent on color really does help those who are having a decorating dilemma, if you still haven't found the perfect scheme keep looking at the wheel, spin the wheel, ask Jesus to take the wheel (You can thank Carrie Underwood's song that often plays in my head for that); but whatever you do, make it work FOR THE LOVE OF COLOR!
