Color has frequency and frequency has vibration. I like color because it moves.
Above are fotos of La Sussurrata, our home on Paros. The top, when we first got it. The bottom, a few months later. As you can see, the easiest way to change the look of a room is by painting its walls.
Color is simultaneously form (because it occupies visual space) and content (because it expresses mood).
Warm colors move forward and cool colors recede. Some people are warm and some people are cool.
Paolina Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister, while planning a party at Villa Borghese in Rome, learned that her arch rival was to wear a red dress. So the night before the party, Paolina had the walls covered with red fabric to obliterate the presence of her rival’s dress and who was wearing it.
Itten color Chart

Would you eat an egg white that was blue?
