Holistic Hues That Calm

The colors I have here are from Benjamin Moore Color Stories. I’ve always loved the colors in this collection for several reasons.

For one, the names are really spot on – I mean who doesn’t love Butter Cookie? So what does these colors have to do with calming? Let’s find out.

Holistic color for your home

What was the first thing that came to mind when you read “Butter Cookie?” Let me guess:

  • Grandma
  • Kitchen
  • Love
  • Comfort food
  • Family
  • Fun
  • Kids
  • Coziness
  • Holidays
  • Parties
  • Smiles
  • Indulgences
  • Calories – sorry I know that ruined the moment but it did run through your mind right?

Ok – these are all words, thoughts and feelings that come from memories we’ve had. I bet you didn’t think paint color could do that did you?

Yes it can!

THIS is what Holistic Hues are all about. If you get the right combination of colors, ok the names help as well, into your home, you change up the energy in your home.

What happens when you change the energy in your home? All good things!

When you choose Holistic Hues in your home, your space now becomes part of you. I know that sounds crazy but think about this for a moment. Which FEELS better to you.

You may not like to put this color palette in your home but the question was which FEELS better?

As time goes on, you’ll see that the main paint companies such as Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore will be slowly tapping into the Holistic aspect of color. The already have. Even Valspar has their “6th Sense” collection.” I loved the inspiration behind that thumbs us to the Designer who got this one going.

When we find color palettes in unexpected places such as in the luminous hues of crystal or when we find comfort just by looking at the name of a paint color, THESE are the colors that we want to live with. Try them and see how they feel on you.
