  • Color Me Here

    1. 1. Color me here  Creating your sanctuary, an energetic guide to color selection for your home or business Corey Hitchcock, M.F.A, Architectural Colorist
    2. 2. A client’s request: “ I have a hectic work pace…I want to feel my adrenals calm down the moment I open my front door.” <ul><li>Color gives you permission to change your surroundings for health and well being. </li></ul><ul><li>Discover the subtle but powerful relationship you have with your environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Stepping away from mental naming opens the door to an experience of expansive, surrounding color, dedicated to helping you rest, work, cook, entertain, play and sleep. </li></ul>Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    3. 3. <ul><li>Color and change are complimentary and often a need to change the colors that surround you has been suggested on a subtle-body level by some deep change already underway </li></ul><ul><li>A need to create a personal sanctuary usually comes on the heels of some radical shift or pause in life’s hectic pace - or in recognizing the need for one! </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps you have moved to a new location , or are recovering from an illness, have begun a new spiritual practice, your children have left home for college, or you are beginning a new phase of your career. </li></ul><ul><li>Beneath all that you DO, is how you FEEL , dream, play, rest, eat, love, contemplate, meditate and relate. Intuitive Color will support you at this deeper level by setting the tone for harmony in those soulful activities. </li></ul>Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    4. 4. Introducing some Color Magic beginning: inside, why ‘white is….. not right.’ Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    5. 5. Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    6. 6. Live with Color Magic Rich color actually expands a room spatially. This is true even in a very small room. This soothing affect runs contrary to the generally held opinion that rich color will create a smaller or more restrictive sense of space. Color Myth: Rich colors constrict space Live with Color MAGIC 1 : Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    7. 7. Live with Color Magic 1 : Rich, interior color Notice the inviting ‘conversation’ between the colors of furnishings, artwork, walls and trim in this lovely living room above, and in contrast……….. Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    8. 8. … And here, notice the feeling of huddled separation created by the isolating white in this living room. Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
    9. 9. Ceiling color helps hold a room spatially. In a very small bathroom, for example, a colored ceiling will add space and a feeling of height vs. the radical ‘color stop’ a white ceiling creates. Many off-white or related midrange colors can also help soothe this transition. Color Myth 2: Ceilings must be kept white or I will feel claustrophobic!

    13. 13. Live with Color Magic 3 : When to accent….. <ul><li>Look to the Architectural features for flow and to help establish color-break points in your overall scheme. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t accent a wall with color simply because you can. Think about what the color would accomplish in your room, and how accenting would help or hinder the overall affects of room size, shape, lighting of the room, and the kind of ambiance you wish to create . </li></ul>Corey Hitchcock MFA, Architectural Colorist livewithcolor.com
