The theory is typically applied with Space Design through the Colour Combination schemes, which involves in various design works such as fence’s colour, the colour of noise shield wall on the express way, the colour of oil tanks at Petroleum Authority of Thailand, and so on. Regardless of various colour matching schemes, Nippon Paint would introduce to you certain colour matching techniques which are based on the Colour Wheel. For example, let’s begin by basing on a primary like red R225 (RGB Base), and assign the saturation and brightness at fixed values.
1.Complementary Style involves a matching of colours which are opposite to each other on the Colour Wheel. The high contrast of the two generates a tremendous appeal. Complementary Style hence requires a perfection in proportionality.
2.Analogous Style involves a matching of colours which are near to one another on the Colour Wheel. Not only the Analogous Style is easy to apply, it also boats natural features of those shades. The scheme fits best with unsophisticated works, such as a colour planning for buildings or mass construction as the style helps control the overall area’s conception.
3.Monochromatic Style is nowadays the most popular scheme, especially among housing development projects. The tones represent the ease of use, while not sacrificing moods and feeling. The matching delivers dual colour which compliments one another. The scheme basically involves two tones which are considered warm colour and imitate natural elements.
4.Shade Style partly shares some technique with the Monochromatic Style but with an exception that shades are of the opposite side. These shades contain higher proportion of darkness and density. The scheme therefore suits well when matching materials of dark tones, such as wooden lath or sash’s shading.
5.Triad Style involves a matching of three colours which are evenly spaced around the Colour Wheel. The tones quite differ from one another, which suit well in differentiating the function design in interior colour planning work, especially in signifying room function.
6.Tetrad Style partly shares some technique with the Triad Style but with an exception that each colour has higher coherence in tones, as the scheme uses four colours positioned on two complimentary pairs.
