Considered the negation of color, black is conservative and goes well with almost any color except the very dark. Black is a great color to convey elegance and sophistication. Black can also add a touch of mystery.


In clothing, black is visually slimming. Like other dark colors, it can make a room appear to shrink in size. Even a well-lit room looks dark with a lot of black. Black can also make other colors appear brighter.




These words are synonymous with or represent various shades of the color black: coal, charcoal, ebony, ink, jet, lampblack, midnight, obsidian, onyx, raven, sable, soot.

Green is life. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment, the color is reminiscent of Spring.


Using Green:
  • With both a warming and cooling effect, the color green denotes balance, harmony, and stability.
  • Use several shades of green for a fresh, Springtime feel.
  • Olive, also called olive drab, is a not so drab summery green that may have military overtones for some people.


The color green is diverse. Emerald, lime, beryl, sap, aquamarine and pine are all terms used to describe different shades of green. It is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue.


Using Green with Other Colors
  • Green with blue produces echoes of nature – water and forest and can denote new beginnings and growth.


  • Green with brown, tan, or beige says organic or recycled and can be a good color combination for packaging of those type of products.


  • Tri-color combinations of green with yellow and black or white are sporty, outdoorsy colors. Purple with green can be high contrast, lively.


  • Lime green with orange and yellow is a fresh and fruity palette.
