can use color to energize, or to cool down. By selecting the right color
scheme, you can create an ambiance of elegance, warmth or tranquility,

most powerful design element if you learn to use it effectively.
Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are considered to be complementary colors (example: red and green).

when used at full saturation. This color scheme must be managed well so
it is not jarring.
