When I first start working with new clients, after the 'budget talk,' and the 'schedule talk' - we have to get down to the nitty gritty and have the 'colour talk.' I love seeing how people respond to different colours! And on this cool, gray San Francisco morning - I'm yearning for something bright. Something cheerful. Maybe something fuchsia.
Sometimes I find inspiration on the fashion runways . . .
Me at the Stark Showroom in SF
Quite often when we're touring thought the house with a new client, I'll ask to see the master closet - firstly (from a business point of view), we might need to re-design them - but, it's also a great opportunity to see what colours they respond to.
Maybe there's a scene from a favourite film that speaks to your sense of colour . . .
But, how should we use it?
Or it can be as subtle as using masses of pink flowers in the room . . .
Maybe we could use the impact of artwork -
I've always loved this image. The colour is SO delicious.
Or we could just lavishly use multiple shades of pink to make the room magical . . .
I hope everyone has great plans for the weekend. For myself, I'm participating in the "ING Bay to Breakers Race" in the morning - Can't wait!
