The Joy of Using Complementary Color in Small Spaces

When you’re working with small spaces it’s important to consider how the colors of the plants you chose will complement your space. What color is the house or fence or surrounding space? What color pots do you plan to use? Pick two or three colors at most in a small space. A monotone look with just one color and variations of that color can have a big impact. Too many colors may be overwhelming.

Pick a palette to work from and stick with it. Consider using the color wheel to pick colors that will complement each other. Orange and blue, purple and yellow, and red and green are opposites of each other and will pop. More subtle combinations would be to chose colors next to each other. Add white for some filler and use greens to fill the spaces in between plants.

If you can only pick a few plants, consider the leaves and their colors as well. They may range from bright green to sage or purple or brown depending on the plants you chose. Above all have fun with it and pick colors that you love. I myself am partial to pinks, corals and purples. So I tend to use those in my garden spaces.
