How Can I Get A Soft, Cozy, Warm Dining Room?

You know I’m going to say “start with the perfect color palette” right? Which colors should you use? Well, there are options.

As we approach 2019, we should now be thinking about colors that we want to leave behind and colors that we would consider. Some of these colors may be out of your comfort zone but like many things in life, you won’t know it until you try it.

Take a look at my dining room above. The colors are earthy and inviting. Imagine sitting in this room in the evening with your family, candles lit, awesome food and ambiance.

What Color Does “True Bliss” Look Like?

When you are authentic to yourself, you feel “True Bliss”.  It’s more of a feeling rather than a color of course. Green is the color of the Heart Chakra – when it’s activated and balanced, life is good! Valspar has some of the best greens and it’s the paint company I use when I need that special hue.

I Want An Earthy Yet Calming Color Palette

Is the coastal color trend beginning to fade a bit? People still want calming colors but are now seeking color that are just a little bit more earthy and do not contain gray. Come see how to tie the two looks together.

My clients give me the best ideas for color palettes. In a recent phone conversation we had my client said she did NOT want any more grays but wanted a similar look – Earthy and Calming. Bingo! This color palette was born.

The main difference with this color palette is the two colors on the right. The top right is not a gray but more like a taupe, a cross between a brown and a gray. It’s actually a very warm color.

The “peachy” color underneath that is a risk taker but I SO want people to start getting this color into the home. Wait to you see this color on the wall! It’s warm, will go with all your warm undertones and best yet, it’s on the upswing of a color trend. I rarely see this color in a home but darn it, it so needs to be!

Also, let’s get rid of those stark white ceilings and get some color on them. That will be the center color. Keep your trim white for contrast and here, you’ll have one amazing dwelling!

Which Gray Are You Drawn To And Why?

Gray is one color that SO many of us have to be super careful of when we bring it into the home? Why? Because of the way it makes us feel.

how-does-color-make-you-feel-decorating-by-donna-intuitive-color-expert.001

Here I have three grays. The first one is a warm gray, the middle one has a very green undertone and the last gray is a cool gray. Each one of these grays “feels” different depending on you and you alone.

• Some people will just like the first warm gray because it feels inviting.
• Some people will love the middle gray because it feels homey and comforting.
• Some people will be drawn to the gray on the right because it feels crips and clean.
• Some people will not like any of these grays because they all feel lifeless and depressing.

Now – which gray do you like and why?

Add LOVE To Your Home With Pink

Whenever I think about color I always think about the Chakra system and how it relates to the mind, body and spirit. Here, pink represent love and the higher Heart Chakra.

heart chakra

 

If you are familiar with the Chakras, the Heart Chakra is actually green. There is a Chakra, the Higher Heart Chakra, just about our heart and below our throat and that is where this Chakra is.

Like pink for the home? It doesn’t have to be this bubble gum pink of course, any pink will do.

When you do find a pink that you like, think of this affirmation to it to add to the loving energy this Chakra represents.
