Relationships in Color

Have you ever wondered why certain colors just “work” together?  You spend hours on trying to select a paint color for your walls, and it’s overwhelming and even confusing.  You’ve probably heard of the terms used to describe the relationships of colors, i.e., complimentary, contrasting or harmonizing colors, but have you ever looked at a color wheel to see where these colors are placed on the wheel?  If you did, you’d see why they seem to belong together in the same space.

It’s really an easy lesson, and the reason that colors, or hues work together doesn’t have to be complicated.  The basics start with the primary hues, which are red, blue and yellow.  When you mix red and blue, you get violet, mix blue and yellow, you get green, and finally yellow and red to get orange.  Those are your primary and secondary colors.  Now let’s throw one more term in there and come up with your tertiary colors by mixing a primary color with a secondary color to get a blue-green, or a yellow-orange.

So let’s pick a palette to paint your room.  Start with your favorite color, blue.  Colors that will work with blue depend on their placement on the color wheel.  Colors that harmonize are next to each other on the color wheel, such as blue-green or blue-violet.  If you want to select a contrasting or complimentary color, look across the color wheel to orange.  You might select a monochromatic color scheme by toning down the hue adding grey or tinting it by adding white.  It really is that simple.

A truly harmonious space can be created with paint by referring to your color wheel for guidance.  Better yet, bring in a color consultant that has experience selecting and putting together color and all you have to do is say, “Yes, I love it!”

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.

Brooks Panting Inc. just finished painting the exterior of our house. The crew did a terrific job. The house is a mid century modern with redwood paneling and an unusual amount of trim work. The Brooks crew was efficient, the quality of the painting was exceptional and the work was completed on time! Because of the age of the house several panels needed to be replaced. Brooks had the expertise to closely match the new paneling with the old paneling. I would not hesitate to recommend this company. They are professionals!

You are an excellent company and I couldn't be any happier with your work. This is your second job for me and both were excellent.

Donald S., Realtor

Mark and the team from Brook’s Painting are exceptional at their jobs. We recently renovated a 5000sqft home and they did all the painting. Their attention to detail and investment in our project is so appreciated, and we knew we were in good hands with them. The value they add by identifying issues, making suggestions and going the extra mile to deliver quality work and make sure we are happy with our home is such a breath of fresh air. I would hire this team and company for any future work in a heartbeat and can’t say enough how amazing they are!
