PAINTING COLORS AND TONES
Tonal variations The pure forms of each of the primary, secondary, and tertiary colours can be modified to create an enormous range of tonal variations simply by adding differing amounts of white or black. However, it is the subtle variations in tone that are most likely to produce colour combinations that blend together successfully in a room's colour scheme. For example, a range of pale blue-greens and blues will combine happily together. If you want the striking contrasts of colours on either side of the colour wheel, use lighter or darker tones of one or both colours. As a general rule, lighter tones produce subtle harmonies; darker tones give bolder and more dramatic results. Warm and cool colours On one side of the colour wheel are the "warm" colours - red-violet, red, red- orange, orange, yellow-orange, and orange. On the other side are the "cool" colours - yellow-green, green, blue-green, blue, blue- violet, and violet. Colours from the same side of the colour wheel tend to blend most effectively, whereas a mixture of warm and cool tones may produce jarring results. Whether you opt for a warm or a cool colour range depends on the mood you wish to create. Warm colours tend to be lively and exciting. Cool colours tend to suggest a relaxed, calm atmosphere. The degree to which you achieve these atmospheric effects depends on the intensity of the colours you choose, and whether you use them pure or mixed. Match the mixer unless you are starting from scratch with an empty room, you will probably have certain basic elements to match with your colour scheme. Do you already have a fitted carpet, a set of curtains, or a suite of furniture to be incorporated? Will you paint the walls in a tone that contrasts or complements the existing colours? Will you introduce more colours and, if so, which ones? The question is, what to match and what to mix?

To match, extend tonal variations of this colour - lighter and darker tones - onto the wall and other features. Alternatively, pick two colours that are very close on the color wheel , such as blue and blue-violet, and then use vary proportions of each.
