How Can You Work With Color and Crystals?

Color Quickie: Deep Rose Red by Benjamin Moore

Red is a great color to have in the central part of the home. Red represents the Root Chakra, it is grounding, and represents the family and friends in our lives . If you do paint this vibrant red in your home, use a gray primer first. This will help with coverage. I had a similar red in one of my homes (20 years ago) and used five coats of paint! I wish I knew then what I know now 😉

Color Quickie: What Can Pink Do For You?

I never used to like pink until I painted my office a color that was between pink and lavender. I didn’t choose this color because it looked pretty. I chose it because I loved the way it felt. It was uplifting, inspiring, and just light. When I felt my day was heavy, I’d retreat to my office and, within minutes, felt happier. Yes, color can do this!

Clients Need To Know The Story Behind Their Colors

Color is a HUGE part of my life. Today, I’d like to share this Benjamin Moore pale yellow with you: Kansas Grain.

It’s soft, like the morning sun just popping out. It’s a reminder to start your day slowly and softly; there is no rush. When choosing colors for clients, I find it helpful to explain why I choose the colors I do.

Sometimes clients think we pull colors out of our “top tens” and use them repeatedly; sadly, some designers do this. I like to take it one step further, explain why I gravitate toward color and give a little storyline. This way, when the home gets painted, hopefully, that story of the “morning sun” will be a thought for the homeowners to remember. An excellent way to choose a paint color, don’t you think?
