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 studio offices!

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.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against
hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any tips?
