THE REINVENTION OF COLOUR - STARTS TODAY, which is EVERY DAY!

THE REINVENTION OF COLOUR - STARTS TODAY , which is EVERY DAY! 

I LOVE ORANGE

+ the  
US (and MANY OTHER countries, worldwide!) needs a COLOR REVOLUTION!  
Maybe that would help THE ECONOMY?! 

Some people say: "we become what we eat."
I say: "we become what we see!"

Most of the houses here - at least apartment- and housing communities- are painted BEIGE OR BETTER IN ANY SAD MUDDY COLOR. [strange enough, it is really hard to find these colors online, what is not really necessary, because everyone knows what i mean!]
I feel S A D, when I see them,... even better, next to the freeway! 
i must admit, when it comes to that so typical BEIGE-MUD-WHAT -EVER-WANT-TO-BE-COLOR, i tend to become a little dry.
so, i often asked myself what possibly could be the reason for  
this beige disaster

is it maybe a kind of being GREEN, and the whole world underestimated the foresight of the us, a sort of recycling all the left overs from other paint jobs, in the way of mixing them all together, and adding some white left overs to stretch the %) wonderful experience a bit. wow, that's maybe green, AT LEAST concerning the PAINT; but what about being green to our souls
my idea .... "please, dear painter, could you be more accurate in calculating the amount of paint for   your projects, that we can  enjoy nicer colors in the future! & thanks soooo much!" ;)
 
LET'S CHANGE TO THE BETTER! 
LETS BE BOLD & BRAVE! GET MORE COLOUR INTO UR SOUL & IN YOUR LIFE

if you love colors -AND I KNOW, MANY PEOPLE DO!-, but YOU are still afraid to use them in your home or office, i have a great book tip for you:

brilliant color at home

 

 

newcomers to interior design and experienced designers alike will find a wealth of practical ideas in this celebration of bright color and how to use them.
by Elizabeth Hilliard

or  talk to an interior designer, who is well experienced with colors, who has an eye for how to use them to in the right proportion to make you feel comfortable. 
let me tell you 2 little stories from my personal life.  
my husband  was never such a bright colors person before we got married ;), but god thanks, open and experimental enough to let me guide him into the world of colors, which still is lots of fun for both of us ;) 
one day, when i came home with a grass green small table.
on any other table - the fresh green of the table  triggers happiness in his heart - in mine too!

later the green happy table got a sister - an orange happy table .... for guests ;) 

++++++
a bigger project, when we moved in this house, was to decide on the color of our dining room and a part of the attached living room is now painted in "coral canyon" 
because the living room is oriented to north-east, we miss the warm light from the south there. that was the reason for me to choose this hue [color]. the chroma is high, a bit tinted, to soften it for he eye, because there was quite some square footage to paint.
the "coral canyon" hue charges the more cool light with warmth, and gives the space now a welcoming atmosphere. [especially nice for the most of us women, because it feels warmer to us!] 

before it was painted , who would have thought so, it was a kind of LILAC-GREYISH BEIGE .... BRRRRRR %)
i am so glad that we have landlords who are open minded enough that they gave us the chance to  change the colors in the house. 
introducing some contrast to the large wall at the end of the room, [we have a vaulted ceiling] i arranged a couple of nearly ceiling high, black bamboo sticks, bound together in bunches of three. in front of the wall, which looks fabulous! 

++++++++++++++
when you choose your color be brave and honest. choose 
colors which are connected to  your HEART!

... and know that color professionals often will advise you to use specific colors for specific locations in your house or office, but when you don't like them at all - from your heart, which means you feel real uncomfortable with them. let the interior designer/architects know about it, and tell them what you would prefer instead.

.. but also know, that leaving the path of the known and familiar, means be open in your mind and heart, and then you will maybe find something what you never would have experienced otherwise.
 

 



carpe diem
+ LOVE KRIS

see how EASY you can accentuate your interior space with beautiful bright colors, which will inspire & INFLUENCE your daily LIFE & SOUL IMMENSELY!

OUR WORLD - OUR RESPONSIBILITY! + CHINA THE NEW 1. WORLD IN DESIGN? + my newest graPHic DeSign woRk ;)

! OUR WORLD - OUR RESPONSIBILITY !  


We are living in exceptional times.
Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.
