Tetrad:

A tetrad is a color palette that combines two, complimentary pair of colors for a total of four colors.  An example would be incorporating orange, blue, yellow, and violet into a space.  Orange and blue are often seen together just as yellow and violet are, but put all four together and you create a very unique, customized color palette.

For more detailed information about tetrads on the color wheel, visit this Watercolor Journal post.

Here are a few examples of a tetrad color scheme in action:

Tetrad color palettes are not for the faint of heart.  What do you think?  Do you like them?  Would you use a tetrad color scheme in your space?
