Lilac Mist and Lavender Mist

September 30, 2019

Both of these colors fall into the violet category and as stated in my previous blog post, have the qualities of spirituality and calmness, making them especially good for meditation rooms. However, as you’ll see from the photos below, they work equally well in bedrooms and bathrooms. “Lilac Mist” can also be somewhat masculine and makes a great wall color in rooms with brown leather furnishings, for instance.

As you can see, “Lilac Mist” is a very grayed down subtle color.
Used on the top exterior of this building in St. Francisville’s historic district, “Lilac Mist” passed the Historical Society guidelines.

Plum

September 27, 2019

“Plum” is a new color created for a client who wanted something a tad brighter than “Silk Road Plum”. Although I retired “Silk Road Plum”, it’s still available so I’ll share photos of both. Both colors are in the violet family which vibrate at a much higher frequency due to the red in it, so it’s not quite as calming as blue or green. Its qualities of spirituality and calmness make it a great background color in meditations. It activates a strong psychic response, together with an incredible reach of the mind.

My favorite “Plum” room is the foyor in the private quarters of the St. Franisville Inn. Ceiling is “Juliet’s Potion”.
The walls are so velvety, I wanted the trim and door to be the same finish, so I used the same “Plum” in an exterior flat. “Juliet’s Potion” is also available although it was retired.

Adobe and Timeless Bronze

September 19, 2019

“Adobe”, named after the adobe houses out West, is a warm brown that creates feelings of comfort, home and security. Brown is a purely physicial vibration promoting stability and groundedness. It typifies home and hearth and the satisfaction of basic human needs. The color of living wood and the earth, it can be rich yet subtle–extraordinarily restful to look upon as it creates a feeling of coolness and warmth at the same time.

When I painted my first sample of “Timeless Bronze”, I was surprised by how it looks almost metallic!

Camelhair and Moutarde

September 18, 2019

Both of these colors are in the gold family. I named “Camelhair” because it reminds me of a camelhair coat. It’s more of a traditional, brownish gold. “Moutarde”, French for mustard, is a deeper more saturated gold. Gold is one of my favorite colors, not because it is associated with abundance and success but on a spiritual level it is the color of divine awareness, spiritual healing and positive change. According to Meredith Young-Sowers of the Stillpoint Foundation, “It radiates love, compassion and understanding to all who come into contact with its radiant light. Gold symbolizes a degree of perfection, the completion of man’s process of transmutation from the base metal of instinct to the realization of the divine spark within.”
