{Color Palette Love} Candy Collection

One of my favorite websites is Design Seeds. I love checking put new color palettes. It always inspires me to create new projects with new color sets. Unfortunately, I was busy for last couple of months so I didn’t have much time to work on my own color palettes. IN addition to that I made a switch to Mac computer and when one day I found time and wanted to work on my next palette I realized that the software I used to create the look of my color palettes is not working on mac. And that means I will have to design new look which means new project. Wow, sometimes I think I have to many projects! So for now I thought I will share with you these color palettes I call: candy collection.

It is a cute little succulent that I keep on my kitchen/dinning area window with all the other items I love looking at while taking a break from work. I don’t have actual working space and  I’m ussualy work from my couch or at the dinning table. I’ve read somewhere that if your working space is inviting and makes you feel happy you become more creative and productive and this is the direction I went for with my kitchen window decor since i don’t really have a view.  I Hoep you like it. What do you keep on your kitchen window/working space?

{Color Crazy} Green

Today I will share some insides about the color green because it is everywhere! This time of the year this color surrounds us and can be found in every aspect of our lives.  Green occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye than most colors. We are able to discern the most shades of that color.

It is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue. Like blue, time moves faster in a green room. Green soothes and relaxes mentally, as well as physically. It helps alleviate depression, nervousness, and anxiety. Dull dark green is associated with money,  the financial world, banking, and Wall Street. Green gemstones are used by many to attract money, prosperity and wealth.

In the feng shui theory if five elements, color green obviously belongs to the wood element. When working with green color in feng shui, it is important to have at least several different shades in order to maximize the feng shui energy effects. A great way to bring color green in feng shui is with actual plants that have lush green foliage. Green plants bring soothing element to your surrounding, they visually recede, helping to make smaller space appear larger.
