A Calming Influence Through Color

"Scientists have studied the effect of color on our mood, health and way of thinking for many years. Our preference of one color over another may have something to do with the way color makes us feel. Light energy stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands, which regulate hormones and other physiological systems in the body".  Colors Influence Mood

Starting with a lovely photo of the sea at dusk, it was easy to find it's corresponding color palette using Sherwin Williams "Chip It". Then off to the showroom and our online store to find a rug, furniture, and lighting to bring the whole mood together. Details from the board below.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
