The Mysterious Wonder of COLOR

October 17, 2011

Do you ever wonder how (or WHY?) designers pick the color combinations they do?  Well, sometimes it’s based on client preferences but many times it derives from some source of inspiration.  A good example of this is our post on fashion inspired rooms – if you look at those images you see how the color combination in the outfit inspires the room colors.  You can see that post HERE.

I am admittedly a neutral-holic and color phobe in my own home and wardrobe.  It’s probably one of the reasons I am so excited to share this post with you!  If you are nervous about selecting and committing to any combination of color – or if you are gunshy on what color to put with what – then be ready for your bleak colorless world to be ROCKED.

One of our new favorite sites is Design Seeds.  It’s like a Garanimals (remember those?) for color shy adults.  Color Genius Jessica shares with us her lifelong passion for color and (with beautiful imagery) gives us an enormous amount of color inspiration.

Go on.  Be bold.  Be brave.  Be colorful.

Life is lived best in color.
