Living Colour

Just think of a Indian wedding, cirque Du Soleil, Avatar, your favourite Disney Film and you can't help be uplifted by the colours. Wouldn't it be fabulous to see an increase in the use of colours in our everyday life, from architecture, interior design, products, fashion and marketing.
Most cultures play it safe; in the colour of clothes we wear, colour of the cars we drive, and colours we paint our walls.

But we are hard wired to react to colour. Children love bright colours, fast food chains grab our attention with Bright colours. Colours affect our lives even if we don't notice it, colours express and representing , status, religion and emotion.

One of the few upsides of this recessionary climate is we are starting to see designers enticed into using more colours, Disney have even opened a world of Colour in California.
I know I will be encouraging my clients to embrace colour and ban beige!

Fabulous color post Lisa!!!! As a color lover myself, I too wish people would embrace color a little more and not so conservative.
