ODE TO COLOR

Living well with color.

I invite you to participate in the Ode to Color Analysis: eighteen engaging questions that will guide you to the color world or worlds that will best suit your home and work interiors and enhance the way you live.

Color speaks to our senses on an emotional level. It influences our moods, conjures associations, evokes memories, decorates our lives and simply speaks to who we are. It is a basic form of self-expression. The following analysis concerns the importance in your lifestyle, preferences, and aspirations of ten unique color worlds, which are featured in my book, Ode to Color.

These color worlds correspond to the many gears and moods we all move through in the course of our lives, among them rest, work, reflection, levity and love. Finding the optimal color world, or combination of color worlds, for your interiors can have a positive impact on your enjoyment and use of those spaces.

Enjoy!
