Some people, when looking at all the flowers on the Brant Florist website are in awe of all the choices, yet sometimes want a color changed or want to create their own color scheme yet are not quite sure what will look good together. Here are a few tips that will help you when you want to create your own flower arrangement when it comes to color schemes.

Monochromatic Color Scheme: This is the use of a single color in varying shades. This can be a clean and interesting look in a flower arrangement and look quite sophisticated yet give the perfect simplicity one may be after. It is soothing and pleasing to the eye especially.

Complimentary Color Scheme: This is using high contrast of color by selecting colors directly opposite from one another on the color wheel (such as pink and lime green). This puts a warm color flower with a cool color flower and is pleasing to the eye. It can create a dramatic look.

Triple Color Scheme: This scheme uses three different colors of flowers equally spaced from each other around a color wheel. It’s popular with flower arrangements and allows for a harmonious color scheme.

The colors in flowers are the first thing that is picked up on before even the type of flowers used. When the colors are pleasing to the eye, the smile comes through.
