Colour harmonies produce different visual effects, for example (and very roughly!): a monochromatic scheme (using one colour) creates a sense of visual cohesion complementary colours (opposites on the colour wheel) create a strong/vibrant contrast while analogous colours (neighbours on the colour wheel) produce a more harmonious effect This application can be used to search over Cooper Hewitt's collection, over 200,000 design objects, by a colour and colour harmony and see the results displayed on a timeline.
