20 Creative Color Schemes Inspired By The Color Wheel

An empty room is a blank canvas for any decorator to fill with color, pattern and texture. While decorators have a handle on color schemes that work, choosing color schemes can be a scary proposition for others. Fear not, there are a few easy guidelines to follow that will have anyone picking colors like a pro. There are five basic color schemes and a myriad of options from which to draw upon for inspiration and we will review each of them.


The monochromatic color scheme is perhaps the easiest to understand. It is the use of any one tint, hue or shade of a single color. This scheme can be either very relaxing or very dramatic depending on the color chosen and the various shades or tints incorporated. For a bit of drama consider the use of a warm hue such as red or orange. For a cooler feel try blues or greens. Grays, whites and creams are fabulous options for neutral schemes.

From Our Clients

As we were moving into a new house it was the perfect opportunity to get some professional advice on a colour theme that would not only look well overall but also progress logically from room to room. Ruth was quickly able to give us definitive recommendations on colours that worked really well for the function of each room but also blended seamlessly from one part of the house to another. She selected just the perfect shade of red for our period dining room and came up with a beautiful combination of three shades for the hallway which I would never have thought of. We are so glad we decided to get expert advice for our new home – highly recommend it if you have the opportunity.

Paula Fyans, Dublin 6

  • Thank you for the care and attention you and your staff have given to our new home. You made it happen. My husband and I are truly enjoying our newly finished and furnished Holiday Home. I hope you have saved before and after pictures. because no one would believe it was the same place. It is warm. comfortable and elegant just what we had planned. You worked very hard to get just the right touches. Please use inside photos to share the beautiful results.

    Yvonne Thornton, Chicago & Waterville

  • R.K.Designs has managed a number of fit outs for me over the past few months, all of which have been carried out excellently, I have no hesitation in recommending RK Designs to anyone looking for a creative, reliable and professional service.

    Joe Jackman, Dublin 14

  • I had been thinking of redecorating our dining room for some time but just did not know where to start and was reluctant to ask any Interior Designer to take on such a small project. I came across RK Designs eye-catching website, contacted Ruth and everything took off from there. The final result is a room more beautiful than I could have imagined. Ruth’s friendly and professional approach would put even the most discerning (and reluctant) first-time client at their ease. I feel I will be seeing her again in the near future.

    Alison Kinsella, Dublin 6w

  • RK Designs did a fantastic job of fitting out 2 apartments for me for rental. The service was excellent and they were the first two apartments to be rented out in the whole block. The rental agent was very impressed and I would highly recommend RK Designs to anyone looking to fit out properties for rental.

    Gerry Kid, Dublin 2

  • We built a 3,500 square foot French style lodge using largely reclaimed materials. We employed Ruth Kennelly to design an interior that followed this ‘old world’ French theme. What I loved about Ruth is the way she really listened turning infantile ideas into practical realties with flair and enthusiasm. Ruth’s experience and contacts saved us so much time, legwork and money. Highly recommended – we’re thrilled with our home.

    Michelle Moloughney, Clontarf

  • Ruth Kennelly designed and managed a complete refurbishment of my house. I trusted her judgement and style, so much so that I handed her the keys and went away on holidays for three weeks. And what a result – a fantastic revamp from old to new. I have no hesitation in highly recommending RK Designs to family and friends alike.

    Clodhna Ferris, Dun Laoghaire

  • RK Designs carried out a complete refurbishment of my property including a new kitchen, bathroom, flooring, living room and bedroom. The work was carried out on time and within budget. The consultation process was excellent and the subsequent project management was professional and effective. The workmanship was of an extremely high quality. I received value for money and the result was a fantastic new interior. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending RK Designs in the future.

    A list of 180+ ranked schools that don t require ACT or SAT scores for admissions

    George Washington University in Washington, D.C. is the newest major school to drop its requirement that most freshman applicants must submit SAT or ACT test scores for admissions purposes, according to this story by my Post colleague Nick Anderson, joining a list of more than 850 accredited, bachelor-degree granting schools (out of about 3,000 in the United States).

    Of that group, some schools don’t require any students to submit scores, others exempt those students with specific GPA and class rank statistics, and still others require the test scores for the purposes of class placement or other non-admissions reasons.

    Here is a list of 181 leading colleges and universities that have changed their requirements on submitting ACT and SAT college admissions test scores. The number next to the schools refers to their rank on the U.S. News World Report Best Colleges Guide (2015 Edition)

    This list was compiled and is maintained by the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, known as FairTest. a non-profit that works to prevent misuse and abuse of standardized tests. Its Web sit e has a lot of information on the SAT and ACT as well as on standardized testing in general. FairTest Public Education Director Bob Schaeffer said that growing number of test-optional schools “recognizes that no test—not the SAT, old or new, nor the ACT – is needed for high-quality admissions.”

    Once appointed guardian, you must solve a host of problems hoarding, foreclosure, family fighting, missing money, Medicaid, nursing home placement, repairs, etc. and the Order Judgment will not cover everything. Knowing your next move (be it by NOM, OSC, or ex parte order) is complicated. When it comes to guardianship, there is often no form. This skills CLE will discuss interim motions for relief made by guardians and their counsel, as well as provide examples of language, format, and strategies to use in your motions.

    Employee Stock Options (ESO)

    ByJohn Summa . CTA, PhD, Founder of HedgeMyOptions.com and OptionsNerd.com

    Employee stock options. or ESOs, represent one form of equity compensation granted by companies to their employees and executives. They give the holder the right to purchase the company stock at a specified price for a limited duration of time in quantities spelled out in the options agreement.

    ESOs represent the most common form of equity compensation. In this tutorial, the employee (or grantee) also known as the “optionee”, will learn the basics of ESO valuation, how they differ from their brethren in the listed (exchange traded) options family, and what risks and rewards are associated with holding these during their limited life. Additionally, the risk of holding ESOs when they get in the money versus early or premature exercise will be examined.

    In Chapter 2,we describe ESOs at a very basic level. When a company decides that it would like to align its employee interests with the aims of the management, one way to do this is to issue compensation in the form of equity in the company. It is also a way of deferring compensation. Restricted stock grants, incentive stock options and ESOs all are forms equity compensation can take. While restricted stock and incentive stock options are important areas of equity compensation, they will not be explored here. Instead, the focus is on non-qualified ESOs.

    We begin by providing a detailed description of the key terms and concepts associated with ESOs from the perspective of employees and their self interest. Vesting. expiration dates and expected time to expiration, volatility pricing, strike (or exercise) prices, and many other useful and necessary concepts are explained. These are important building blocks of understanding ESOs – an important foundation for making informed choices about how to manage your equity compensation.

    ESOs are granted to employees as a form of compensation, as mentioned above, but these options do not have any marketable value (since they do not trade in a secondary market ) and are generally non-transferable. This is a key difference that will be explored in greater detail in Chapter 3, which covers basic options terminology and concepts, while highlighting other similarities and differences between the traded (listed) and non-traded (ESO) contracts.

    An important feature of ESOs is their theoretical value, which is explained in Chapter 4. Theoretical value is derived from options pricing models like the Black-Scholes (BS), or a binomial pricing approach. Generally speaking, the BS model is accepted by most as a valid form of ESO valuation and meets Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) standards, assuming that the options do not pay dividends. But even if the company does pay dividends, there is a dividend-paying version of the BS model that can incorporate the dividend stream into the pricing of these ESOs. There is ongoing debate in and out of academia, meanwhile, about how to best value ESOs, a topic that is well beyond this tutorial.

    Chapter 5looks at what a grantee should be thinking about once an ESO is granted by an employer. It is important for the employee (grantee) to understand the risks and potential rewards of simply holding ESOs until they expire. There are some stylized scenarios that can be useful in illustrating what is at stake and what to look out for when considering your options. This segment, therefore, outlines key outcomes from holding your ESOs.

    A common form of management by employees to reduce risk and lock in gains is the early (or premature) exercise. This is somewhat of a dilemma, and poses some tough choices for ESO holders. Ultimately, this decision will depend on one’s personal risk appetite and specific financial needs, both in the short and long term. Chapter 6 looks at the process of early exercise, the financial objectives typical of a grantee taking this road (and related issues), plus the associated risks and tax implications (especially short-term tax liabilities). Too many holders rely on conventional wisdom about ESO risk management which, unfortunately, may be loaded with conflicts of interest, and therefore may not necessarily be the best choice. For example, the common practice of recommending early exercise in order to diversify assets may not produce the optimal outcomes desired. There are trade offs and opportunity costs that must be carefully examined.

    Besides removing the alignment between employee and company (which was the purportedly one of the intended purposes of the grant), the early exercise exposes the holder to a large tax bite (at ordinary income tax rates). In exchange, the holder does lock in some appreciation in value on their ESO (intrinsic value). Extrinsic. or time value, is real value. It represents value proportional to probability of gaining more intrinsic value. Alternatives do exist for most holders of ESOs for avoiding premature exercise (i.e. exercising before expiration date). Hedging with listed options is one such alternative, which is briefly explained in Chapter 7 along with some of the pros and cons of such an approach.

    Employees face a complex and often confusing tax liability picture when considering their choices about ESOs and their management. The tax implications of early exercise, a tax on intrinsic value as compensation income, not capital gains, can be painful and may not be necessary once you are aware of some of the alternatives. However, hedging raises a new set of questions and resulting confusion about tax burden and risks, which is beyond the scope of this tutorial.

    ESOs are held by tens of millions of employees and executives in

    and many more worldwide are in possession of these often misunderstood assets known as equity compensation. Trying to get a handle on the risks, both tax and equity, is not easy but a little effort at understanding the fundamentals will go a long way toward demystifying ESOs. That way, when you sit down with your financial planner or wealth manager, you can have a more informed discussion – one that will hopefully empower you to make the best choices about your financial future.

    Is Your Car Registration Deductible?

    Your car registration fees may be partially deductible on your federal income taxes, but only under certain circumstances.

    Annual car registration fees may be partially deductible on your federal income taxes, but only under certain circumstances. A portion of the registration fee must be charged based on the vehicle’s value — as opposed to its size, age or other characteristics. If part of your registration is indeed deductible, you must itemize your deductions to claim it, rather than using the standard deduction.

    Value-based fees

    Every state has its own way of calculating the registration fee on a vehicle, and those calculations typically take several factors into account. For example, say your annual car registration fee is based on a formula that charges $2 per 100 pounds of vehicle weight, $1 per $1,000 of value, a flat $10 for license plate tabs, and $35 in other taxes and charges. If you had a 4,200-pound vehicle with a value estimated by the state at $25,000, then your fee would be $154 ($84 plus $25 plus $10 plus $35). Of that, only $25 would be an itemized deduction, because that’s the only portion based on the actual value of the vehicle.

    Annual fees

    To be deductible, a value-based auto registration fee must also be assessed on an annual basis. What matters here is the frequency with which the tax is charged to you, not the frequency with which it’s actually collected. A state could collect half of the fee every six months, for example, or allow you to pay two years’ worth of fees at a time, but you can still take a deduction as long as the fees are assessed on a per-year basis.

    Taking the deduction

    To deduct the value-based portion of your registration fee, you must itemize your deductions using federal Schedule A. Car fees go on the line for personal property taxes. Note that your state might not specifically refer to the fee as a personal property tax. Nevertheless, if the fee is value-based and assessed on a yearly basis, the IRS considers it a personal property tax.

    Identifying value-based portion

    Depending on your state, it might not be apparent whether a portion of your car registration is value-based or how to identify what portion of the fee qualifies for the deductions. In California, for instance, the value-based portion is identified on car owners’ billing statements as a vehicle license fee and is specifically labeled as tax-deductible. In Iowa, the state provides a worksheet for determining the deduction based on information from the car registration document. In Texas, on the other hand, no portion of the registration fee is based on car value, so you can’t deduct anything.

    When you use TurboTax to prepare your taxes, we ll help you determine which portion of your registration fee, if any, is deductible.
