Εχτές έγινα φίλη με τον χρωματοπώλη της γειτονιάς μου. Γίναμε δε τόσο καλοί φίλοι, που μου έδωσε ολόκληρη τη σκαλιέρα (!) της Sherwin Williams (οικολογικά, και ωραία) και όχι μόνο το χρωματολόγιο, για να τη μελετήσω με ησυχία στο σπίτι… ο συνδυασμός που βλέπεις επάνω παίζει για το υπνοδωμάτιο, ενώ ο πιο κάτω για το γραφείο-δωμάτιο 2-ησυχαστήριο μου.

Εδώ οι αποχρώσεις για το γραφείο… (αλλά δεν βρήκα εικόνα με γραφείο, μπορείς να βάλεις και λίγο τη φαντασία να δουλέψει!!)

Δεν θα σε κουράσω άλλο, καταλαβαίνεις τι κόλλημα είναι!!! …με το που αλλάζω τα χρώματα στους τοίχους, έχει αλλάξει το κουβερλί, οι κουρτίνες, τα λινοσκεπάσματα, μόνο το χαλί έμεινε ατάραχο!!!

http://www.sherwin-williams.com/  εδώ θα δεις περισσότερα, αλλά και θα μάθεις πολλά περισσότερα!

http://www.sherwin.com/visualizer/# αυτό είναι όλα τα λεφτά! επιλέγεις το δωμάτιο που σε ενδιαφέρει να αλλάξεις, και δοκιμάζεις online πως μεταμορφώνεται με κάθε νέα χρωματική επιλογή!!! Μπες και σκάλωσε!

Ψάχνοντας για περισσότερες ιδέες στον αγαπημένο πι-σού-λη, βρήκα χρωματικές προτάσεις βάσει… ζωδίου! (ρίχνεις μια ματιά αν ξεμείνεις από ιδέες;) http://blog.myperfectcolor.com/category/paint-colors

My Jupiter is in Leo, But My Walls Are Still white.

 

Often, when I’m called in to help with choosing color for interiors, my clients have a good idea of what they want and don’t want.  Stacks of paint samples are piled around the room, fabric samples stacked on a counter, and advertisements are ripped from  home magazines. Sometimes, existing pieces of art or furniture dictate how the color will go together in the space. These clients may feel stuck, but they’re in great shape because they’re already editing their likes and dislikes, and know what they’re after. I’m more of a color referee, than a dictator.

And then there are times when a client is faced with an empty slate. With no existing pieces to dictate our direction, nor any preference or prejudice about color, we have to find color inspiration somewhere else. We go through magazines and exchange numerous emails to find something that clicks, and we go from there.  I’m there as a detective, drawing out their true colors.

But what if we decided that this very sensible approach was entirely too sensible? What if we looked to the stars to find your perfect palette?  Would that be any more risky than trying to find color inspiration as you stand in a badly-lit store poring over thousands of paint colors, while listening to elevator music?  No, I didn’t think so either. So I’ve created your very own paint color horoscope.

Aries –  You’re a confident soul. Your energy is boundless, and you’ve even considered doing all of your own painting once your colors are chosen.  A true leader, you’ve instead decided to enlist the help of family and friends… while you head to the golf course.  Oh, did I also mention that you’re very clever?  An Aries has the confidence to live with bold colors and strong design.

Here is an energetic palette just right for Aries:

Springwater Aqualine Fudge Cookie Tile Red

Taurus – You are a strong and sensible type, with friendships to be envied. Your loyalty and devotion is honorable, but that couch you’ve refused to replace for the last 20 years, is not. Taureans love palettes that reflect their bond with the Earth.

Though change does not always come easily to you, here is a palette to help you through the transition to a new Taurus:

Rainforest Dew Pale Avocado Heather Gray Tropicana Cabana

Gemini – Your astrological symbol is the Twins. Whenever a Gemini is in the room it’s an instant party.  Clever, and always one-step ahead, the Geminis reading this will have already skipped ahead to see their palette.  Geminis thrive in lively environments and warm colors.

Oh, hello Gemini! Sorry it took us so long to get here to your lively palette:

Cassia Pale Cowslip 4 Pumpkin 6 Burgundy 5

Cancer – The homebody of the astrological world, you work hard to create a warm and nurturing place to share with family and friends. Choosing colors for your home is very important to you, and any difficulty in creating the perfect atmosphere can leave you downright crabby.  A soft and soothing palette is just right for you.

Here is a palette designed to evoke moonlit nights, and calm seas, just as the Cancer would have it:

Pool Foam Spray Feather

Leo – Fiery Leo is the theatrical character of the zodiac.  Known for giving fabulous parties, seeking careers in the limelight, and being the center of attention, Leos often have a flare for decorating.  In fact, I’m a feeling a little intimidated by designing this palette for you.

Here is your palette, Leo, feel free to make it your own (you know you will!)

Splendor Wasabi Caliente Barrista

Virgo –  I want to be sure that the palette I create for you, Virgo, is perfect. Because you like perfect, don’t you? As a child your pencils were always sharp, your homework always on time, and your stuffed animals arranged on your bed, alphabetically.  Your organizational skills and attention to detail is awe-inspiring, and you’re often called upon to lend your label-maker to friends.

For you, Virgo, here is a 100% fussy-free palette, just the way you like it:

Indian Wells Jodhpur Tan Veranda Iris Scottish Horizon

Libra – It’s hard to be objective about Libras, being a Libra myself.  But I’ll try to tone down the effusive praise of this wonderful sign. Libras are magnetic, friendly, and have a passion for beauty. Libras can also be cranky and unreasonable when forced to endure a bad paint scheme.

For my fellow Libra, I offer a paint palette designed to keep your world in balance:

Boudoir Citrine Serenata French Press

Scorpio – Intense.  That pretty much sums you up, Scorpio. You like your coffee strong, your friendships deep, and your colors powerful. Your the first person on your block to try black paint in the dining room, and make it look smashing.  You’re a force to be reckoned with, and no one would be silly enough to question the black paint, even if you hadn’t quite gotten it right.

I humbly suggest the following palette for your consideration, Scorpio:

Bishops Robe Tamarind Galvanized Blackened Pearl

Sagittarius – The globe-trotter! If you’re a Sagittarius reading this right now, you’re most likely sitting in a cafe in an exotic location — or you’re just wishing you were.  Your friends and family write your new address in pencil, each time you move.  87.5% of all postcard stamps are purchased by Sagittarians.  The secret to a good palette for you is vibrant colors that never get tiresome.

If you’re still here reading this, Sagittarius, this is your exotic new palette:

Happy Camper Sunlit Sand Alligator Alley Amber Autumn

Capricorn – If pin-stripe could be a paint color, you can be sure it would be part of your paint color palette, Capricorn. Your business acumen is legendary. Chances are that the kid down the street with the lemonade stand is a also a Capricorn.  You’re prized by friends and family for your calm and stable personality.

While I can’t give you any financial advice, I can offer up a most sensible color palette that will give you another kind of return on your investment, Capricorn:

Lenox Tan Tranquil Blue Casco Bay Bronzed Beige

Aquarius – I’ve been saving a really fun purple paint color just for you, Aquarius. There is no one in the zodiac that does unique the way you do.  My father was an Aquarius. I am inspired by his taste in clothes, in particular the purple paisley shirt he wore in the 70s. Interestingly, he wore it with the striped bell bottoms featuring colors of the desert.  Aquarians are the only ones who can pull that look off with aplomb.

Here’s to the Aquarians! A truly original paint color palette for the true originals:

Instinct Kalamata Anjou Pear Caponata

Pisces – The ever-soulful, sensitive, Pisces.  You are a soft heart in a sea of sharp edges, and the sign voted most likely to cry at those greeting card commercials on television.  Did someone mention the sea? You’re most at home in shades of blue and green, straight from the ocean.

An oceanic paint color palette for you, Pisces. Dive in!

Clearwater Blue Sunwashed Pink Sea Shimmer Ivory Brown

    η laura ashley δυστυχώς η ευτυχώς κυλάει στις φλέβες μου, δεν θα ξεχάσω ποτέ την ταπετσαρία στο παιδικό κοριτσίστικο δωμάτιο μου, με τις πεταλούδες, σε αποχρώσεις του πράσινου, τα χρόνια περνούσαν και αυτή δεν χαλούσε ποτέ! …μέχρι που την έβγαλα μια μέρα με τα ίδια μου τα χέρια για να βάψω τον τοίχο μπλέ…
    that was then, and this is now, και είναι υπέροχη η ταπετσαρία σου, ούτε εγώ θα την άλλαζα, και χαίρομαι που είναι και πάλι στη μόδα!
