As 2020 is coming to a close, I’m really excited to share more of what I do, for 2021.
It’s intuitive, exciting and some surprises will be offered weekly. Keep me bookmarked, 2021 is going to be awesome!
I love this time of year when hams are backing and the spicy scent of Clove is in the air. From tea to Gingerbread, Clove is just one aroma that pours out of kitchens and seeps into other parts of the home waiting for it to get noticed, and noticed it does.
How rich would a home look with these colors? Cloves, cinnamon, cranberries, gingerbread, chocolate, and eggplant! These colors were made for the hungry home.
I look at these colors and I see love. Love you ask? Yes! The pinks and greens represent our Heart Chakra and what better colors to have in our home now more so than ever. What’s great about this color palette is that you can mix and match them, interchangeably, and they will all work together. These six colors are enough to fill your entire house. Just add a soft white for trim and ceiling and you’re good to go.
Our meditation and yoga rooms should represent our inner peace and tranquility. It’s the room in our home where we can focus on breathing, managing our thoughts, and releasing the day’s stresses. How do we ever choose a color that will help make this one room in our home the ultimate in reaching our zen? Here’s something to consider.
This is a very popular question I get in my email. With 2020 as is has played out so far, it’s no wonder.
I’d like to share a virtual project that I just completed. When I connect with a client – that where the INTUITIVE part of my title comes in – I base the colors around my client’s energy, much like a reading. Here is an email I’d like to share with you.
Come enjoy some of my inspirational color palettes that connect you to places you love, feelings you want to remember, and colors you want for your home. Please note I can create any of these color palettes for you in the paint brand that you want to use. Feel free to email me at DcoratingbyDonna@mac.com
Oh, I know how a dark room looks and feels! When I was growing up, my bedroom was north facing and it always felt cold and looked dark. How did I fix it? With color of course! Come hear what colors I chose to instantly brighten my bedroom.
Here is the link to my YouTube channel to see this video:
Once in a while, I get a request to choose colors for just one room in the house. Oddly, this can be a challenge because I can’t see the surrounding rooms. In these cases, I try to give the client a color suggestion from several color groups in hopes that one of them will work with the other rooms.
Open concept homes or homes with an open floor plan are often a challenge to design color for. Most people, and I’ve seen this a thousand times, choose beige or shades of gray for the entire home. This shows a lack of color knowledge and placement. This, is my specialty!
I am currently working on a virtual color consultation for a four thousand square foot home in New York. She has a few northern rooms that need to be lightened, a VERY open concept home, and afraid of using color to define her spaces.
So thankful for my 30+ year career in the world of color and design. Who knew when I was a kid out of high school in the ’80s that my career choice would lead me to a path of design AND spiritual enlightenment. Color is more than just the pigment you put on your walls, it’s what you FEEL when you see it, it’s our chakra system , aura colors, and our memories.
I’ve designed healing color palettes for people who have ADHD, cancer, anxiety, you name it, there is a color for it to heal.
Even for me, color is a therapy that I find when I paint. It’s the auras and chakras I see, it’s the angels I sense when I see certain colors and it’s the emotions that unravel many mysteries for me.
For the next few months, as always, my focus will be on color and how it heals and uplights us in our lives. I invite you to keep an eye out for my posts and please subscribe to http://www.DecoratingbyDonna.com.
