Easter is an excuse for using lots of color and I’ll take any excuse I can get! Traditions in egg coloring and flushes of spring flowers draw us to dressing our tables with lots of it for the holiday. My table this year is pulled from the color in my collection of Ukrainian hand dyed eggs.
Each year I decorate using my egg collection and every year is an excuse to use a different color combination. I decided on a Triadic Complimentary Color scheme this year. These schemes are the most lively because the colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel create a visual vibration as the optic nerves are tickled to make sense of them. In short, when complimentary colors are placed next to each other they make each other more appear more vibrant.
