“This Spring is all about colour blocking”

Color blocking isn’t for the faint of heart.

This season’s big trend of color blocking takes bold opposites on the color wheel and puts them together for the widest contrast possible.  The only other extreme color block combination is black/white.

So, primary colors on the color wheel are red, blue and yellow; secondary colors are purple (a mixture of blue/red), green (yellow/blue), and orange (red/yellow).  The optimal color block scheme would be to take a red, mix it with a green, and add a third color.



What colour blocking can achieve:

  • Colour blocking is a fabulous and inexpensive way to create something fun.
  • It Creates an instant focal point
  • Colour blocking provides eye catching contrast!
  • It creates a strong and graphic statement

What do you think of this current trend?
