The color wheel is very important if you want to choose colors that work well with each other. It is safe to say that in the absence of such information, you may not be able to make the best decisions possible here.
To that end, before you choose blue pots for plants, we will be providing a sort of summary that you can use as a guide to help you through this process. When you have a more comprehensive understanding of this space, you can then move on to the more complex aspects of choosing the right planter for your space.
Basic Introduction to Color Theory For Planters
In essence, this is what you need to know to understand how colors interact with each other. This also covers how their psyche relates with each other. Knowing how the color theory works helps you understands how the existing colors in your surrounding area can potentially interact with the color of the planter that you want to introduce to this surrounding.
What this translates to is that it is not enough to just say you like the color of any given planter and then introduce it to your home or front lawn.
First, you need to know what the color wheel is and how the various colors on it interact with each other.
So, to start with, you should know about the four different color patterns. These are:
Complementary Color Patterns
These are essentially refers to the arrangement of four colors which lay parallel to each on the color wheel. In a nutshell, every color that is found in this category is simple and benefits each other to the extent that there is no chance that they can antagonize themselves in any arrangement or alignment.
Analogous Color Patterns
Next on the list are analogous color patterns. These are essentially the opposite of complementary color patterns. This is so in the sense that these colors stand right next to each other.
They also feature or appear as slightly altered shades of each other.
One of the most perfect representations of this pattern of colors that you are likely to find today is in the Academy Award winning movie, Moonlight.
Triadic Color Patterns
Just as the name might imply or suggest, the colors that feature in this pattern have a tri or three color scheme. The colors that feature here all complement and work well with each other. Some of these colors include but are not limited to Purple, Orange, Blue and Green.
Tetradic Color Patterns
Last on this list are the tetradic color patterns. These are remarkably more intricate and complex, especially when compared to the other members on this list. They are also incredibly nuanced and widely varying. Colors here include Cyan, Red and Purple.
