Most color combinations that look amazing can be explained by looking at their positions on the color wheel. There’s a science to mixing colors that we sometimes use without realizing it. Still, there are some combinations that are wonderful no matter what the wheel says. Perhaps it’s because we see them together all the time - something that nature has put together, or maybe the jerseys on our favorite sports team.
Most of my favorite color combos can be found on the wheel. I adore Chocolate and Mint, which are really just orange and green at different values. Coral Red and Turquoise Blue is another favorite, although I haven’t been brave enough to use it just yet. Then there is a combination I like to call Barbie Doll - blonde yellow with electric pink.
