A Week In Colors | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

It doesn’t seem I have ever enough colors in my life. This past week, I ran a week of colors on Facebook, spreading my knowledge, explaining some properties of colors and presenting some methods for using colors.
I had a client, who poor thing, didn’t understand anything about colors, did not know how to combine colors, anything about the subject of colors was gibberish to her. In her native country, taking art classes was considered not that important, it was the reason for her lack of color knowledge, which made her very unsecured in some tasks of the day, like getting dressed. I had to create a color system for her to make the act of getting dressed in the morning easy and worry-free.

Waldorf-Colors-of-the-Day

Waldorf Colors of the Day

Some people hear, see, or smell something and immediately memories of a person, a situation, attached to that sound, that view, or particular aroma, perfume, or odor comes to their mind. This condition of receiving a stimulus through sensory perception is called synaesthesia and some people can either taste colors or see their days in colors without any efforts. They dress in the color of each day because they see specific colors for each day.

Many are the color methods for each day of the week, it all depends on your belief. The Waldorf color method invented by Rudolf Steiner was used for educating kids in kindergarten and elementary age to use a specific color for each day. The method created a daily routine, a new life rhythm and apparently, kept them from making tantrums. The method teaches kids the basic order of things, kids are better prepared for the natural succession of life events, i.e. Tuesday comes after Monday, and know-how to transition from one thing to another, i.e. Red Day comes after Purple Day, meaning for example on the Red Day the kid must organize his/her closet as one of the chores to do daily. Kids using the Waldorf method know to get dressed in the color of the day without any problem (they know what to expect) and do activities using those colors.
However, kids are going to be kids. I am wondering, what if one kid wants to change the color of one day? Will he/she be considered a rebel, or a free thinker?
As a kid, I could not possibly follow any method….although disciplined and focused on my studies, I had my way and that was the way. My father often came to my elementary school to apologize with the teacher because I had studied what I wanted and not what was assigned. 😀

Color methods were not always accepted as a discipline to learn something organized. There were times when color combinations and believing that the color of each day came from the colors of planets, were associated with witchcraft.

“Today, scientists have attributed various colors to each planet they have discovered. We know that Mars is the red planet and the Moon is silvery. They also have attributed certain colors to the substances each planet is made of. If you ever had a birth chart done for you, then you know that zodiac signs and planets represent the cosmos influence you were born under. One or two planets rule each astrological sign, their color energy can affect our personality as well as defining lines of character.” I wrote it in my book ©RED-A Voyage Into Colors

I believe in the theory that the colors of planets affect us human being on earth, thus I went to visit Mars when I published my first book at the end of that year. Ah, ah, 😂

Color of the day method is also used in marketing, i.e. blue sale today for menopause day or yellow day for the sale of your virgin grandmother. Get it?!
Selling products on discount must have a certain bright color, red for instance, to create immediacy and a need to buy it now.

In certain religions, the color of each day is for the celebration of Deities’ birthday. The color palette of each day might change in various religions. The world of colors unites many cultures and that to me is fascinating. If following a method of colors means to have a structured life with less stress and worries, then, by all means, do it. Ciao.
