When designing a room with an analogous color scheme there are either 2 or 3 colors right next to each other on the color wheel. The blue, green, and yellow analogous combination is a very good one, and is used often, and you are about to see why. The yellow color brightens up the darker blue and green as an accent color. It is important that there is one color stronger than the other colors in the room and this is known as the dominant hue, and is the main color for the room and is usually the floor and the main furniture.

The sofa very closely matches the floor color, the settee repeats the colors in a stripe, and the side chairs and ottoman is the accent color.
