Harmonize cool and warm neutrals by blending the two most opposite. Example: Cool Monsoon and warm Stonish Beige. Resulting colors bridge color temperatures. That's how you develop harmony and construct cohesiveness from what your personal color tolerance may initially sense as clashing. ........ Contrast of cool and warm is essential to successfully create balanced atmospheres. ........ From a focused, deconstructed palette you can create multiple color relationships. Example: Pleasing contrasts (thus color relationships) highlighted in this colorgraphical infographic are warm and cool & vivid and dull. COLOR TREND HOW-TO BONUS: Dunn-Edwards's DEA110 Untamed Orange is similar to Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year Tangerine Tango. Like the color maps in this infographic, you can use these vivid orange-reds to punctuate your color schemes. Color Knowledge Neutral technically means without hue; of zero chroma; achromatic. However, the word neutral has come to have a broader meaning in our modern lexicon of color. I chose the term "interpreted neutrals" to acknowledge both the technical and adopted use of the word neutral. Be aware of what "warm" and "cool" means. With regard to architectural color, there are two kinds of color temperature and undertone, in situ and intrinsic. Consider initial determination of a color's intrinsic characteristics, temperature and undertone, as an estimate only. Because once in situ - in context of the space - they will shift. Characteristics shift for many reasons like artificial and natural light, and affects resulting when color is juxtaposed to contents of the room.
