Welcome to week two of our August Color Cure. This week I'm going to introduce you to a second very important lesson about color - distinguishing between warm and cool colors. Doing this is a very big help when planning how to employ color around your home and it's easy to get a handle on if you hear it only once. So, watch the video above and then experiment with tips in this lesson for the rest of the week. Want to get this in an email as well? Sign up on the Color Cure Home Page.
This Week's Assignment
This week I want you to think about the difference between the two main types of colors: warm and cool. While in experienced hands they can be mixed to great effect, a very common beginners mistake is to pair warm and cool in a room and not know why things don't seem to work very well. When you know the difference between these two types and can skillfully work with them separately, you will have a powerful handle on using color in your own home.
This week I'll be sharing and painting our kitchen and then ask you to try applying the tips in the video to your own kitchen or social area. However, if you want to work on another room, please go ahead. I'm going to work on four different rooms this month, so you will get a sense for how color can work it's way around your home.
Enjoy your color!
