It is SO Not A Good Idea To Choose Color On Cloudy Days

I recently had a color consultation and unfortunately it was on a cloudy rainy day. Now I know that this is not the day to choose color for my clients but she was under an extreme tight timeline. So I went ahead with the consult. Needless to say the colors we’re looking mighty gray and dingy as I expected.

In cases like this where I cannot reschedule consult I tell the client that we will go ahead and choose color today but will review them on the next sunny day and make changes as needed.

I have another color consultation today and yes it is cloudy and due to rain any minute. I contacted the client and advised her that it would be best to wait for a sunny day and thankfully she agreed.

You can’t rush choosing color for your home.

The Healing Power Of Green

I have been receiving a lot of requests for colors that heal and this makes me happy to no end. The common thread here is to eliminate gray from the home and replace it with warm, healing colors. These are actual words from clients that I have been receiving in emails.

What is so exciting about green? Green is a nice combination of blue, which is still a favorite color among most people and yellow which is a very warm healing color. Now that interesting fact about blue is that although it’s still crazy popular there are many people that cannot have blue in the home because of certain depression issues that they may be feeling.

Stressed? Think Pink-ish

Sometimes just looking at a color calms – this one does it for me and it’s actually very close to my office color. Feel stressed? Think pink with a touch of lavender in it. Now keep in mind – you don’t have to run and paint your wall this color but certainly have it in the home somewhere – maybe clothes or decor.
