- There are no "right" combinations
- Colors are like notes in music - they are heard in sequence and played at the same time as others in a chord
- And just like music, colors are subjective - perception depends on the sequence of colors, the context, the quantity of each color, your own eyes, and your own (changing) tastes
- The best way to learn about color is to PLAY with it
"We change, correct, or reverse our opinions about colors, and this change of opinion may shift forth and back. Therefore, we try to recognize our preferences and our aversions - what colors dominate in our work; what colors, on the other hand, are rejected, disliked, or of no appeal. Usually a special effort in using disliked colors ends with our falling in love with them." (17).
