Color affects us so many in ways in our world. Color identify is a universal language and our bodies react to different colors with a variety of effects. For example, the most common color identity is RED. Passion, Intensity, Drama, Fear…symbolism we are all familiar with that surrounds us in everything from stop signs to sexy lingerie. When it comes to the interior of our homes, we can choose the colors that speak to us. All color starts with nature and culture with a range of emotions and meanings linked to every dominant color.
What color speaks to you? What colors are timeless, what colors are trendy? How long does a color trend last? Do you like to live wear the same colors in your clothing that you want to see in your home? What colors work well together? Stick around as we answer those questions through our Color Story Promotion. Or send us an email or tweet to @swanintmaui with your color questions.
The state of the national economy clearly affects color and our attitude between soft and subtle or bold and cheerful. Over the past five years, the traditional rules of color have been broken where we see a mix of unusual color combinations married together with a twist that is unpredictable. If you follow the color trends from the large paint companies, you are sure to see some dynamic colors with the influences from around the world. The challenge is to see how to integrate some of those colors into your home environment. Not too many people can or want to change their home colors with the industry directives. And one can only have so many throw pillows to introduce new colors!
At SWAN INTERIORS HOME FURNISHINGS STORE, we have developed our own Color Story working with colors that suit our local environment, climate and influences.
