Colour lovers: aqua & red

The combination of these bright colours make a bold statement. It's the contrast of hot and cold: warm shades of red and cold shades of blue. The effect is slightly softened by the fact that both shades are going towards yellow. To avoid making it too overwhelming only use small quantities of red and aqua and toning down the shades in brightness to pastels or mix with white, grey or sparkling silver. The colour combination is reminiscent of a nautical themed colour palette and will remind us of summer and the beach. Check out the palette at colourlovers
