What is an analogous color scheme? Designers share advice


An analogous color scheme is a way of curating a palette that stems directly from color theory. It is a way of using the wheel to group colors together based on their positioning on the wheel.

It can be a useful tool to adopt when planning the colors to put together in your home, helpful in figuring out what colors work with each other, and can really help create a monochromatic or cocooning feel or give a real sense of vibrancy to a space . ‘Analogous color schemes sound intimidatingly technical, however, they are simple,’ says YesColors co-founder and creative director, Emma Bestley.
