Color is a phenomenon of light. It plays a role in everything we do. Holding symbolism and meaning while influencing our behavior and well-being. Every color is tied to an emotion, from the colors we choose to fill our spaces with to our cultural traditions and national identities. Color evokes an instinctual response from deep within. Although the influence of specific colors varies across continents, cultures, and personal experiences, if carefully considered in each particular context, it is a powerful tool that can be utilized to support your desired mood, atmosphere, and intention.
Intentionally incorporate color as a subtle yet powerful communication tool in your environment. We used red, yellow, and green pops in this (Northwest Facing) California coastal home to enliven the neutral backdrop and promote optimism, creativity, and balance.
