For those wanting to dip a toe into really creative ideas for vivid colour combinations, it might seem the obvious solution to pare bright hues with neutral. However, it`s the amateur`s approach to colour play. True colour connoisseurs are fully aware of the principles of so-called ‘colour-blocking’, which are based on pairing shades that are opposite on the colour wheel.

Thus, outstanding and complementary colour combinations can be achieved.

This approach is thought to originate from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian. However, some experts argue whether his artwork is the true origin of color-blocking.

Perhaps the easiest way to color block like a pro is to use ‘the rule of two-thirds’. This method involves making a triangle on the colour wheel. The three angles of this triangle will point at the three colours which are advisable to use.

Another method is to divide all colours into ‘warm’ and ‘cool’. Warm colors are yellows, reds and oranges. Cool colors are blues, greens and violets. Pick one warm shade and one cool, put them together and your perfect color-blocking palette is ready.

You can also get inspiration from celebrities on how to style this bold trend, since many of them often resort to the help of such out-of-the-box colour combos.
