I don’t really have too much of a problem matching linens when building an event concept. I guess having done so many events, it sort of just comes second nature. But I don’t necessarily have a good way to explain to someone how to put linen colors together in a set of rules. It just … happens.
But I stumbled across a website that does a pretty good job explaining the method behind the madness. How colors work together and how to find colors that most likely will be great. Introducing… the color wheel.
A good, basic introduction to colors and how the work together. May make the whole matching thing a bit less mysterious. And while you won’t necessarily become a fashion maven like Anne Hathaway’s character in The Devil Wears Prada, you might just be a little less apprehensive about your next choice of an outfit.
