Analogous Colour Harmony
Often found in nature, an analogous colour harmony consists of any three colours that lie side-by-side on the colour wheel. These schemes are low contrast, soothing, and more visually interesting than monochromatic colour harmonies while still being very harmonious.
Many designers use the 60-30-10 rule when composing analogous designs, designating:
- one colour to be dominant (60% of the design)
- another colour to be supportive (30% of the design)
- and the last colour to be used for accents (10% of the design)
