I had a quick demonstration of the effects colours have on each other today.
I’ve just come back from a sunshiny holiday. Today a colleague commented that I looked much more tanned than I had yesterday. Today I was wearing a spring green top with a white collar. Yesterday a black top with dark coffee neckline.
The white collar contrasted and made me look more tanned – same principles apply in rooms – colour combinations are key, not just colours in themselves.
