“Color changes everything”

As I get ready to paint my apartment and new art studio (hopefully in February/March), I have been thinking alot about colors, (as I always do of course!) LOL. I came across this color study at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs from 2011 which I thought was an interesting project. So wanted to share to help you ponder a little on color in your own home.

Arkitip carried out a color study at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs where they took five identical rooms and repainted them using three different color combinations, based on The Comex Group’s color schemes. Five journalists then visited the hotel, each staying in a different room for one night, to experience the different colors and what affect it had on their mood.

Here is a short video with some of the information and you can read all about it here:

Everything changes with color; it changes the backdrop, the ambiance and our mood yet we rarely realize its powerful impact.

What colors do you have around you currently?

How do they make you feel?
