April 8, 2013. Behind The Scenes
Posted by Lani
Working with our customers to help pull together their spaces is always one of the best aspects of working at Urban Barn. I find it interesting how customers are drawn to certain colours over others. This season, our stores are featuring a colour combination of dijon yellow and grey. I find it fascinating that most people’s reactions to our feature colour palette is almost identical. They often comment on how happy and cheerful it makes them feel. I thought it might be interesting to explore a few colours and outline what they represent and maybe give us a little insight into why these colours either inspire us or don’t.
Red: Is a colour that represents power, strength and war. Putting red in a room actually speeds up your metabolism and is often the colour associated with passion and desire.
Fueled with this information, we can then analyze our own choices and explore whether our spaces reflect our personalities, or whether they provide us with the sense of solace or motivation we are needing. We notice at the store level, that customers often come in to change the colours in their spaces from one season to the next. Now, while that might seem extreme to some, one can definitely understand how different colours in your home at different times might be the essential to providing you with the comfort you need.
