It’s time to analyze the Color Scheme for the Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland. That’s what the Real Life Color Coach (me) does. I discussed the colors I would use in my Inspiration from Disneland – Leaf Tile article, so now it’s time to go into why the scheme works.
My discussion started with the Neutrals, Whisper White and Very Vanilla. These colors don’t affect the Color Scheme, they are supporting or base/foundation colors. I suggested Whisper White to form the background and Very Vanilla as the basis for the leaves.
Tranquil Tide, the Shade from the Green-Blue Color Group, creates the wash and the shadows for the design elements. Island Indigo is also from the Green-Blue Color Group and can substitute for Tranquil Tide, but is a lighter Tone. It is Analogous to Garden Green, from the Green Color Group, and so works well together for accenting the Neutrals.
Powder Pink is a Tint of the Red-Orange Color Group and Calypso Coral is the Hue. These are Complements to the Green-Blue Color Group and create a pleasing, harmonious Color Scheme with sufficient contrast to be interesting.
Cajun Craze is the Shade from the Orange-Red Color Group and fits the Complementary Color Scheme just fine when you recombine the Red-Orange and Orange-Red colors into the Red-Orange Tertiary Color Group. You may remember that I separated the Tertiary Colors for convenience in creating my Color Charts.
The overall Color Scheme is Complementary Plus, with the Analogous Green & Green-Blue Color Group members complimenting the Red-Orange/Orange-Red Color Group members. And that’s how we analyze the Color Scheme for the Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland.
