How fun was it to write an article for Ballantyne Magazine [Spring Issue page 32] on the ever so popular Coastal Colors. Now this article is a little more than just talking about those beautiful hues. I talk about how these colors “feel” more so than how they look.
I’m getting more and more requests for colors that feel good for the home and that’s great! Holistic colors are really the hues to have in the home, meaning if it feels good to look at just imagine how it will change the energy in your home.
Oh and if you want to read the article here is a link to Ballantyne Magazine and flip to page 32. I write quite a bit for other blogs, websites and magazines I just don’t always post about it. I wanted to share this one because Ballantyne is one of the towns local to me and they have such great homes there, mostly my clients. So anyway, I hope you enjoy the article, it was so fun to write about but then again, writing about color is always fun for me!
Getting back to these colors. I’ve noticed how clients requests are changing when it comes to color for their home. It used to be “oh I trust you, just make my home look pretty” to “I saw the Holistic posts on your website and I’d like to have color that feels good in my home too!”. I love when clients quote my blog and when my writings resonate with them.
When you think about it, what is the main focus of your home? The furniture? The flooring? The artwork? The kitchen? Well sort of yes but what you’re really looking at is color. Color of the furniture, the floor, the decor the countertops, the cabinetry and the walls. If your color which of course includes those crazy undertones is off, your entire home will be off kilter.
Ever go into someone’s home and just feel uncomfortable? I’m not talking about the ghost that is lurking in the corner of the living room I’m talking about the color palette. This also goes for restaurants. I have walked into restaurants and immediately left because the decor was that bad. After all, how would I be able to enjoy a meal if I was staring at a glaring white wall with hideous artwork and some red semi gloss accent wall by the kitchen? That design doesn’t makes sense.
There are homes that have really off color palettes. The decor, well that’s up to you but my job as a Color Expert is to tie in the look of your home whether you want these amazing coastal colors or just a basic palette that will make your home look like some thought was put behind it instead of garage sale decor.
So in this article not only is color a huge factor for your home but color placement and of course how you feel about your color palette. I’ll find the one that feels good for you!
