As I grabbed my iPad yesterday frantically searching for a veterinarian in Wesley Chapel or Waxhaw I finally realized that Petsmart was located just two miles from my home in Wesley Chapel and that they had a hospital staff inside.
Why did I need a vet? My poor cat was flat out in hypoglycemic shock. I recently left the vet I have been going to also in Wesley Chapel so I was in between securing a vet in town and that was fairly close to my house. Petsmart was perfect!
Now you’re probably wondering what this all has to do with color right? Well, let me tell you! As you know from this blog and perhaps some other blogs of mine you may have read you can see that I specialize in just color. No matter where I go or what I do I’m ALWAYS looking, thinking or wondering how I can write about color. So to the point – as hysterical as I was because I though my cat was going to pass, I somehow was able to notice the wall color.
There I am sitting patiently in the waiting room for my cat and the Dr. to tell me how his health is, I somehow cleared my mind enough to notice the wall color.
I’ve written a post on my other blog, A Color Specialist in Charlotte, about the color you always see in the Doctors office. If you haven’t had a chance to read the blog, please stop by. There’s a wealth of information on color but the post I wrote on colors you’d find in the doctor’s office is very interesting and those colors were chosen for reason.
So, as I was sitting on the bench I looked around and noticed the wall color. Was it green? No. Was it blue? No. Was it boring beige? No. White? No. Tacky wallpaper? Thank goodness no. So what color was on the walls in the waiting room?
Here it is!
It’s difficult to see from this photograph because I took the picture with my very old cell phone but the color what quiet shocking – literally! It was a bright almost neon yellow-green. I had to look at it for a while to figure out if it was more green than yellow or more of a yellow with a green undertone.
Either way, I’m glad it was what it was and it distracted me long enough so I would stop worrying about my cat even it was just for a few minutes. In the end, the color was refreshing, unique, not the typical “Doctor or hospital” colors that would be a safe pick and that you’d expect to find.
What’s the lesson learned here? This is a perfect example of how choosing the RIGHT color can have such an impact in your life. Is this a great color? No, not really but it did its job. It was a pleasant distraction in an otherwise upsetting atmosphere and – it made me happy! Perfect. Kudos to the person who picked it out.
So, if you need help choosing color for your home, please contact me. If you’re looking for a really good Veterinarian for your pets, I highly recommend Petsmart in Wesley Chapel, Target shopping center.
