Pretty, Posh & Peppy

Graceful mauve and posh silver take a daring turn in this color palette with the addition of tart citron and vibrant raspberry. The unique color combination creates a study of contrasts and results in what designer Janet Lee calls "a pretty posh paradox".

Designer: Janet Lee

Getting Started:

Use a ratio formula to help you put together a color scheme. Choose one main color to serve as 40-60 percent of your color palette, then one to two supporting colors to comprise 30-40 percent of your color palette, and fill the remainder with one to two accents. Thinking of color this way can help you determine how much of each color to use. Go to the next slide to see how this scheme breaks out.
