Color Preferences - Finding Your Happy Color
In our last two blogs, we discussed how color trends and
color psychology affect our color choices.
For the third and final segment of our color series, we thought it would
be fun to explore how color affects our designers at the studio! As you will see, they picked very different
color choices to paint their individual offices because of how that color makes them feel
as they are working in their spaces.
Peggy had her office painted a beautiful shade of gray with
green and blue undertones. She says this
color helps her to feel calm and stay focused as the busy owner and designer of
By Design Interiors.
Ashton’s office is a vibrant and fun shade of pink! Ashton
says that everyone has a color that makes them happy and pink is hers. She believes it is very important to feel
positive in the environment you spend most of your day in.
Brenda painted her office a rich and lovely shade of
purple. For Brenda, this is a relaxing
and peaceful color and she enjoys the full saturation of colors. Brenda has a pretty green tree outside of her office
window and she finds this color combination very pleasing.
In Mary’s office, she decided to go with a bright, refreshing shade of
teal. This cool green - blue color puts
her in a good frame of mind for work.
Erika also chose a cool color, a mint mixed with Tiffany
Blue. She absolutely loves the color of her office because it is
so energizing and uplifting! Every time
she looks up from her computer and sees it, she smiles. Erika explains, “When
work or life is overly stressful, it is nice to be surrounded by something that
makes me happy, even something as subtle as a wall color.”
So you see, we have a great variety of color in our design
Color is one of the most basic elements to design and can
change the whole feel of a space! Color
can affect us in our workplace and in our homes. As designers, it is important to understand
what our clients are thinking and feeling when they look at a color to help
them make the best color choices.
