RED-A Voyage Into Colors

“…and I was born.
I saw the rainbow and heard the colorful voice of my mother. Ever since then, my life has been a colorful succession of events”.

Gauguin said: “Color is the language of the listening eye”, which helps our imagination soar with inner power and mystery.

Creativity is not a gift for a group of a few chosen people only, it is a gift everyone has; it is a mental capacity residing in all of us. We are creative in our everyday life, resolving problems and finding solutions. Finding our personal style is a process, a matter of learning techniques and following certain basic rules, until we get used to be “creative”. Color will help us creating a message, a mood, a feeling, a character, or harmony.

Time has come for my first book featuring colors and my design world. I was longing to write it and it was in my goals, it was only a matter of time.  Everything in my profession as a designer involves colors from choosing the right hardwood flooring to the colors of cabinetries, from fabrics to bath fixtures, lighting, colors and style.

In the past, the color was one of the elements added to a given project. Today the color is the project; it has become a philosophy in the arts, in marketing, and in our lives. We live in a culture of colors as life’s manifestation and as a means of communicating with others. Today’s minimalism, simple décor and “arte povera” is a reflection of economic scares, but in history, opulence was manifested through colors. We are now able to produce objects balanced with colors; we can design colorful spaces or wear amazing color combinations that will add a smile on our face and energy to our personality.

Color is life! We live under a blue sky and a yellow sun; a silver moon kisses us at night; we swim in green-blue seas and climb on brown mountains; we stroll in green parks and forests, our gardens are filled with a profusion of colored flowers. Nature has done it all for us, we can just copy it and celebrate.  We are the nature; we are the colors.

Since a young age, color has been the primary power in my life’s manifestation and later determined my design work. With this book, I wanted to depict a bouquet of information regarding colors for home interiors, fashion, food, colors for celebrations and even colors in astrology, all the subjects that are dear to my heart.  If we live in a home reflecting our personality, if we wear colors becoming to our face and body and if we eat in the rainbow, we can only expect to exude positive energy, which in turn will captivate our surroundings.
This third book, as the previous two books, also contains my hand drawings, my photographs, and a lot of passion.

Allow yourself to experiment with various color combinations and challenge your fantasy!

“The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you!”
