Color Therapy For Your Home

Color as we know can make us feel happy, sad, relaxed, energized and just about any other emotion you can think of, it all depends on what colors we are looking at. What if we designed or designated just one room our home as a “healing room?”  I don’t…

I had a lunch box, once upon a time.  When I hit 7th grade, I ditched it.  Don't remember what it was, so obviously I didn't care for it.  I do think they are great for kids for lots of things beside lunch:)

Don't like a color? Find out why you need it before you rule out that you don't want it in your home. Color makes sense :-)
Is grey a bleak colour? What's the fuss about Pantone's colour of the? And how can you transform old furniture with a simple lick of paint? Find out here.

Certified Color Expert, Virtual Designer & Artist
Introduction

Highly specialized in choosing color for your home!

Decorating by Donna 

A Color Specialist in Charlotte

Color-Recipes

With a degree in Interior Decorating and Design and 30 years field experience, I've decided to specialize in JUST color for Charlotte, NC.

Knowing I was destined for the Interior Design field, I accomplished a degree in Interior Decorating and Design, with honors. 

From the leanings of art, furniture and how to choose the right fabric for it’s application to the not so fun but oh so important aspect of calculating rolls of wallpaper and figuring out how many porcelain tiles are needed for a kitchen floor. These are just some of the wonders of Interior Decorating and Design and I loved it.

My design career included working as a Ceramic Decorator, Graphic Designer, and Color Matcher for Wallpaper Research & Development and progressed into an official Interior Designer for several Interior Design firms in New York and Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until I worked in the R&D department of a wallpaper design company in New York that I knew I had to pinpoint my career specifically to color. A Color Specialist was born!

Throughout my 20 years of field experience I became an expert in color. “I’ve noticed that there is a huge niche for just choosing color for inside homes, particularly homes that have an open floor plan.” It’s quite an undertaking to be able to design a complete color scheme for a large home. The colors have to flow from one room to another otherwise your home can look like a patchwork quilt. I want people to know that I specialize in this type of color design.

As an Artist, it's one thing to create a painting or take a beautiful photograph but it's not 100% complete until it's professionally framed. I've been going to Divine Custom Frame for years! Dave and Jane Hunt have a great selection of mats and frames in all colors and styles. I highly recommend you go take a look and Dave will gladly design the perfect framing for your art.

Always great food here! The decor is beautiful, service is great and we just always have a great time at El Vallarta. Some nights they have music which is always fun and we've had several birthday celebrations there as well.
