How is color for your home different from color for your mind, body & Spirit?
Very different. Colors for the home will be just color that everyone else is buying. You know the ones that have flooded retail at this point. All the blue, all the gray, all the blue gray combinations. Are they nice colors? Yes and very much the desired coastal color scheme but are they right for you?
You’ve heard me say many times already that we should be choosing colors that feel good to us and ones that really resonate well with us. Without being too redundant here on my blog, in a nutshell try this.
Go outside, on a trip, to the beach, for a walk, to the store – anything at all. Take notice of your surrounds. When you find something that peaks your interest, take note of it’s color. It can be a photograph in a book, an outfit you see in the mall, a purse, certain flowers in the garden. Whatever it is, look at it and either remember it or take a picture of it.
Once you look at that picture you took and notice what colors are in it, study them and start to ask yourself why you like those colors. What do they remind you of? What do yo feel like when you see those color? Happy?
You won’t be drawn to colors that you don’t like to once you discover the colors that you like, I bet you already have them in your home in artwork, pillow, decor and accessories.
When it comes to choosing color for our homes, most of the time our sub subconscience kicks in and guides us or helps us choose and gravitate to the colors that are meant to be in our homes. Try it. It works.
