Blue, green and yellow: the joy of analogous colours

What are your thoughts on analogous colours – clusters of colours next to each other on the colour wheel?

I find the way they work together as a team deeply satisfying. It reminds me of when I see second-in-command with a couple of his good pals, having fun, thick as thieves, and bonded in friendship.

I love using analogous colours in my shelfies, too, because they dance and sing in such great harmony: look at these gorgeous, personality-filled planters in @urbanoutfittershome in blue, green and yellow (top left), making analogous colourways look so easy and intuitive.

Do you have a favourite cluster of colours? And is there a story behind it?
