Oh, it’s that time of year again! Not sure you can actually paint the walls in a dorm but you certainly can have a color scheme to use as a guide. Here I have a great color scheme that is not distracting and has a calm, grounding tone.
I love the earthiness and grounding yet you can still sense a lightness even though it comes across as a masculine palette. It’s a play on colors!
One of the things I love about being a “colorful clairvoyant” is how my world of color and spirit blends; you should be noticing that on my blog now. Here is a beautiful example of that. It’s a channeled message and the colors I see. This is also another reason my virtual designs come so easy to me! It helps to have a strong third eye.
I love revisiting the past through the memories I have, the books I read, or the stories I hear. Here is a color palette that I designed for a virtual client who wanted his 1017 house to have the colors of that time. I present to you, Back In Time.
After a weekend away visiting family, it’s now time to clear my mind, my aura, and still my senses. I long for the tranquility that quieting the mind can bring.
With a sense of peace, specific colors can truly nourish our souls. When we crave stillness and clarity in our everyday lives, we can turn to the basic things in life that will instantly get us there. Through these meditation colors, I hope you receive grounding and mindfulness when you need it most. I know it works for me.
I think every Designer dreams of designing their own colors that maybe someday would be sold on the shelves of all the paint stores; I know I do! Taking that notion into my own hands, I’ve designed these Color Collections that I’ve used for my clients over the years. I love these because all the colors on these swatches can be mixed and matched throughout your home. Like the colors of a new day, I’m starting this series with SUNRISE.
Can a Color Expert come to my home?
Since Covid hit in 2020, I no longer visit residential homes. However, I don’t need to be in your home to get a beautiful color palette. I offer a ZOOM meeting where we can virtually meet, and I can see your home, just as if I was there.
A Color Expert sounds expensive. Can I afford this?
It’s more affordable to have a Color Expert come to your home and choose the right colors for you the first time than to spend time and money driving back and forth to your local paint store with the wrong colors. I bet you have a few color swatches already painted on your walls. That costs time, money, and frustration picking a color you think is suitable only to come home, paint the sample color on your wall and realize it’s still not the color you want. Prices will vary based on the size of your home and the town in which you live. If you are outside the South Charlotte area, consultation fees may be slightly higher. Please email or call me for details, but for the most part, the consultations are $300 for a home under 3,000 square feet. Continue reading

Such a beautiful color for the smallest room in the house! But that’s ok! The laundry room is one of those rooms we hide away from and try to spend as little time possible in there. Time is still time. Make the best of your time by making it pleasant with the perfect color. Email DecoratingByDonna@mac.com if you’d like a new and beautiful color for your laundry room or any room in your home.
These new Sherwin Williams greens are hands down, my favorite! I know they look similar but they are all a bit different from each other. I love the silvery, sagey look and how it’s easy on the eye. In my opinion, these are timeless greens and there’s one that I have in my home. Color that feels good!

Think of it as lavender visual therapy. It’s like a spa day for your senses. We all know how fast our nerves can get shattered, and thankfully, we know how we can instantly fix it with color.
With the enchanting natural chemistry of lavender, we will instantly calm our minds with these colors. You don’t have to paint your walls necessarily but certainly, have these colors chips close by for an instant visual.
As you look at these colors, take a deep breath in for 4 seconds, hold for six seconds and exhale for eight seconds. Repeat as needed.
Nothing says love when you have two colors that really get along – well, at least they look beautiful together. Here we have a blue and green that literally can be found in most homes. Why? They feel good together, they look good together, and somewhere in the home, they just belong together. Color love, it’s a good thing!
