Colour Feature ~ Hunter Green

2050-10 Salamander

Hunter Green promotes harmony and creates restful rooms in the home. This deep green is associated with growth, safety, and helps to create a cozy environment. It is a natural and ideal backdrop in our homes because we as humans are so used to seeing it everywhere. Paint your bedroom in a matte hunter green, juxtaposed by crisp white accessories.

Green is at the centre of the colour spectrum and our eye requires no adjustment to it, therefore green is a colour of balance. Green has a fun sense of hope, adventure, and renewal to it, as well as self-control and compassion.

It is associated to renewal and hope, growth and rebirth. It reminds me of spring, the season when all of the plants are coming back to life with fresh growth and life after the cold winter months.

Colour Feature ~ Black

Colour Featured: Black Satin  2131-10 by 
Benjamin Moore

Black is a mysterious color that is typically associated with embracing the unknown. It promotes a sense of power and self-confidence, allowing for a clearer view of the world. Black absorbs all colour and it is the absence of light. In colour therapy black gives protection from external emotional stress.

Black helps with anxiety and it helps you to feel safe and secure, the perfect colour for a bedroom or family room. The energy of the planet is chaotic but the colour black always feel firmly grounded.

Black doesn’t have to be on every wall to get the look, a feature wall behind a bed or tv works well too. It will create a statement and a focal point in the room.
