Services : Color
Color is the most exciting tool in art and
design. Simply put: it brings beauty into the world. Color successfully
creates atmosphere and evokes feeling; inspiring our lives.
The same space can become rich and elegant,
cozy and intimate, or cool and spacious, based upon the use of
color in its design. This is an important consideration in both,
new construction or remodeling and upgrading already painted
Basic color theory is illustrated with a color
wheel. the wheel shows how colors are related to each other.
They are classified as primary, secondary and tertiary.
Red, yellow and blue are primary colors. To
create secondary colors you would combine two primary colors
together. Tertiary colors results from mixing a primary with
a secondary color.
Colors can be also described as either warm
or cool. Variations of red, orange, yellow and brown fits into
the first category, while variations of green, blue and purple
are considered to be in the second group.
Another group of colors are neutrals including
tints, tones and shades. These are made by mixing the primary
and secondary colors with white, gray or black, respectively.
There are two more, also important attributes of color. Value-
lightness or darkness of color achieved by adding white or black
to a color; and Saturation- intensity of the color which is determined
by how much gray is added to the color.
All of those possibilities open the door of
imagination in terms of color creation. It is understandable
why many people feel overwhelmed with process of choosing paint
colors for their homes. Free color consultation as a part of
my services will help to understand the practical use of color
