What are related color schemes?

Can You Relate?

Can the colors in your bouquet of flowers relate to each other? The two general kinds of color harmonies when it comes to flowers are related and unrelated. Related color schemes are the most simple to pull off. The easiest related harmony to pull off is called monochromatic.

If you're working with a monochromatic color scheme, you're dealing with varying hues of one color. For example, you might mix deep purples along with paler purples and lavenders. The arrangement consists of different tints, tones and shades of only one color.

The other related color harmony is called analogous. An analogous color harmony consists of at least three different colors, all of which must be adjacent to each other on the color wheel. Within these bouquets, you must use multiple shades and tints of the three (or more) colors selected. The outcome is an aesthetically pleasing mixture of harmonious tones.
