Have you ever opened your planner to a fresh week, and wondered just how all those stickers in that mountain of sticker books can be used to create a coordinated masterpiece? Perhaps you have a favorite decoration, but you are unsure what else would go with it.
Have no fear, here are two ways to help you solve this ever so common decorating dilemma: Pinterest and the color wheel.
1. Using Pinterest to Source Color Schemes/Palettes
I must first say, this post is not sponsored by Pinterest. This is a method that I use very often, and thought I would pass along to you. Here’s how you can source color inspiration using the wonderful pinning world of Pinterest.
Log into Pinterest
If you have a Pinterest account, log in so you can save color schemes/palettes to your boards. If you don’t have an account, just sign up. It’s free, and a great resource for finding inspiration for just about anything you might be looking for! Also, while you are at it, come follow me on Pinterest!
Using the search bar, type “color scheme” or “color palette” and enter
Using these keywords will supply similar results, so you can’t go wrong with either search term.
Voila! An abundance of color schemes/palettes perfectly paired for your decorating delight
When you find a color scheme/palette you like or fits your planning style, be sure to pin it for future reference!
2. Using the Color Wheel for Color Coordinated Pairings
The next time you are at your local craft store (you know, picking up more washi, stickers or even a new planner for that matter), pop over to the art section and snag yourself a simple color wheel. This bad boy has all the answers conveniently in one easy reference tool. You can also find one here.
When looking for coordinated colors, flip the color wheel to the back and follow the arrows on the center disc. This will outline triads (three colors that coordinate together) or complimentary colors (two colors directly across the color wheel from each other). This will also show you the hues of each color in case you are looking for a variance in the color type.
That’s it! Two easy ways to find coordinated, cohesive color selections for your next planner spread! Be stumped no more by the elusive overwhelm of pairing decorations together. With these two resources, you will be able to utilize and create planner masterpieces this week!
Have fun with color combinations, and until next time, wishful planning!
