Complementary Colors: Dynamic Duos
Complementary colors are one option your consultant may suggest for adding contrast to your space. Read on to learn why these colors get paired off.
You’ve probably seen a color wheel, with its slices of different hues. If you squint, you may even be able to remember which ones are directly across from each other: red and green, yellow and purple, and blue and orange. These pairs are called complementary, and they pop up everywhere from Christmas decorations to the jerseys of popular sports teams such as the Santas.
Why these particular pairs? As it turns out, they’re bound together not just on the color wheel but within the anatomy of your eye. Demonstrating this is easy. Pick up, say, a bright green granny-smith apple and stare at it for 60 seconds. Then, turn your focus to a blank white wall or piece of paper, and you should see a ghostly reddish orb appear.
This happens because, like muscles, the cells that are responsible for receiving color information get tired if they have to do the same thing for too long. Normally when you look at a clean white surface, all your photoreceptors would be firing, since white light is a blend of every other color. But because your green receptors are temporarily worn out in the part of your visual field where the apple was, they can’t function as well. The opponent-process theory of color vision posits that the pairs of red and green and blue and yellow are each controlled by a single system, so that one takes over if the other is exhausted.
That means that if you design a room with elements of complementary colors, you’re literally providing a reprieve for your eyes. In a room painted blue, there’s a sense in which your eyes actually want to see, say, an orange couch in the corner of the room—it gives the blue color receptors a break. However subtly, this eye-pleasing effect can make you feel more at ease in your space, even if it makes it more difficult to trick visitors into thinking they’ve gone colorblind.

About Art For Life
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are a family-owned business, not a chain, unlike most other art studios; this means everything we do is unique to our backgrounds -- including our afterschool programs with children, where we work with one-of-a-kind art curriculum called "Meet the Masters," based on learning art through the techniques and styles of famous artists through history.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When I opened "Art for Life in Buford" late last year, I had been teaching in k-8 Montessori and other private school classrooms, afterschool centers and in "paint n' sip" locales for more than 20 years; I wanted to have my own studio to apply my varied, unique experience in a place of my own design.
What do you love most about your job?
In the often stressful, hurried times we are living in, I love being able to bring art into the lives of people from 5 to 95 years old, whether they are beginners or experienced artists!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Many children say, "Do I have to leave now?" when their parents come to the studio to pick them up; once, a parent told me, "I was so surprised to hear my son talking about Van Gogh the other day!" These responses let me know I'm making a difference in people's lives!
