A Media Room, In Review

Color Therapy

I recently went a-googling myself, and came up with something so old I completely forgot about it. Well, almost.

You may remember this project from Benjamin Moore. It was part of their Color Preview 2010; published, printed and disseminated all across the land as part of their promotional materials early that year, to display the colors of the moment.

The project was this: to develop a media room for twenty-somethings, and I was assigned this palette. Whereas I loved the midnight blue, I resisted the jade green and dropped the red altogether. This was produced during my flame-stitch fever period, and if I had my druthers, I prefer my bold patterns in a less-is-more colorway. So, I suppose I’m wondering this aloud—if it was my own home, I’d probably drop the green altogether and maybe even the beige. But if the “client” here is a jaunty twenty year old with two cds and a television going, maybe this was the correct direction. I wonder…
