Which Color Connects You To The Earth Element?

Connecting to the Elements, Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, and Metal are key to living here on Earth. Similar to following your zodiac signs, astrology or the moon phases, these Elements are here to help guide us.

I’ve learned over the years to work WITH nature and not against her. Why swim upstream when you can just go with the flow? Yes, working with the Elements can do that.

Today as I continue to work on my book, yes I’m writing a book called “From Color To The Cosmos: Inside The Mind Of A Medium” and like life, the Elements fold into this as well. How?

I always go about my day based on how I feel. I write posts here based on how I feel and live my life, based on how I feel. How do I feel you ask? Earthy and grounded.

Brown is the color of the earth from dirt to tree bark. You don’t have to like this color brown, chose one you like – think coffee and chocolate. Like those browns better? Yea me too!

What Are The Colors Of MY Soul?

After being in the Interior design field for over 30 years it seems like I’ve written about everything under the sun when it comes to color for the home. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, what about me? What about my colors? My soul? My home? I’m ready to switch things up a bit here and talk about what my soul has to do with all this, from color to the cosmos.

Bad Staging: Put The Seat Down!

Quick post here. Seriously, I can’t believe that I saw this on a real estate sight “staged.” This was actually one of the better pictures, the other ones looked like the family still lived in the home. There was clutter all over the home, beds barely made, paint color that even I cringed at and the easiest thing to fix, a toilet seat that was up. Come on people!

Bad Staging!

It’s a minor detail when you consider that this bathroom will need to be repainted but please, put the seat down!

Coral Is A Great Color To Wear and To Have In The Home

Sometimes I give my paintbrushes a rest (yes I am an Artist too) and pick up the camera. I actually have two amazing cameras I should really start using them!

Anyway, as my mind always races and sees color everywhere I go, a camera is good to have to capture a thought or color that I just love. Here, you see shades of coral. Coral is one of my favorite colors to wear because it looks great on just about every skin tone.

What Color Grout Should I Use?

Ever really think about grout color? I’ll tell you this, years ago I had a 16×16 tile with a dark brown grout and it looked amazing. It actually became the design feature of the room. I also had tile in my present home which I’m glad to say the tile is gone, was a 12×12 standard light tile with light grout. What a nightmare!!!!

IF and only IF I ever HAVE to have tile in my home again, dark grout is the way to go. I know it depends on the color of the tile but also considers the darker colors not just the neutrals.

Consider using a darker grout

There are many other colors available for your grout other than just off white. Consider color.
