Colors, Color Combos, and Choosing What Goes Together

Sola wood flowers come in their natural, raw state. The best part about them is that you can completely customize them with any colors. So let's talk about some color theory.

Here is some theory behind choosing colors. 

Color theory is a logical structure for color. It’s a guideline to color mixing and color combinations. The foundation for color theory is the color wheel.

So how do we know what colors go together? It all depends on where they fall on the color wheel!

Looking for a pop of color? Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel. Colors like blue and orange and red and green. Together they create a high contrast and really make something stand out. They really do compliment each other.

More Variety, still with a pop? Split Complementary Colors use three colors. This method takes one color and matches it with the two colors next to its complementary color. For example, if blue was your color in this scheme, the split complementary colors would be yellow orange and red orange.

Want something more uniform and softer on the eyes? Analogous Colors are any three colors next to each other on the color wheel. An example of this is orange, yellow orange, and yellow.

Looking for bold and high contrast? Triadic colors are any three colors that are equally apart on the wheel. Colors like red, yellow, and blue. These will be high contrast, but balanced.

Wanting to hit a fuller range of colors? Tetradic Colors are two sets of complementary colors. Colors like blue and orange and yellow and violet.

These are just a few basic color theory explanations to help you on the path of choosing the right color combinations.

So even though wood flowers start out a soft ivory color, they are very simple to dye. This is especially great if you are using wooden wedding flowers, so you can match the day perfectly!
