The following will have no pictures, no color swatches or any fancy design boards. There will be no designer fonts to grab your attention or photographs of someone else’s gorgeous home or of the latest and greatest color trend. This post will be generic and simple but here, I need to express … the other side of color.
This is a difficult post for me to write, emotionally, but I feel it’s important since it keeps coming up in my life. And let me remind you that things do happen for a reason be it good or bad, easy or hard, emotional or not.
I feel I’m here as a Color Expert not only to design amazing color for my clients but also to be here to design healing colors for them as well, and I have and will continue to do so no matter what.
If you’re familiar with my website, you’ll see that there is color everywhere. Color in pictures, posts, blogs, swatches, podcasts, publications etc. And it’s good color, happy color and color that I designed either for my clients or just for fun because it feels good.
And that’s what good color does. It doesn’t just sit there looking pretty, it makes you feel good, whether you realize it or not. It’s like eating a bowl of ice cream when you’re down in the dumps or cuddling up with a book and a blanket on a cool winter day – these are all “feel good” triggers. Well I extend that “feel good” emotion to my clients in the form of very special color schemes. Healing color.
Like anything else in life there is balance. Good and bad. Hot and cold. Black and white. Happy and sad. When it comes to color, there are similar applications. There are colors that make happy people feel happier or excited or even colors to “cool them down” just a bit. There are colors for special needs children that visually stimulate them or sooth them. Then there are colors for those very special people who have suffered a tremendous loss in their life – life itself.
As I have chills on my body and a knot in my throat typing this, I am so very, very grateful for having this amazing gift of color. A gift to not only express beauty in a home but to create a healing process through the visual of specific color choices.
Some of you are probably scratching your heads right now and that’s ok because this is more about letting you know that there are people in this world with gifts. Gifts are made to be opened and enjoyed. I want to let my clients and my future clients know that I have a gift for you. I know some of you need those special, healing colors and it will be difficult for you to ask or know where to turn for it. Some have found me and some are almost there. I am waiting for you!
