Spotlight: Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene

Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene

I met author Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene by chance while visiting writers and creative people in my blogosphere. Her unusual name attracted me, I thought she might have been French (I never did ask), and that wasn’t the only thing that jumped to my eyes. She posted on Google+ a beautiful cover of her coming book “The Delta Pearl”. I was in love with this picture, the sepia tone evokes travel by steamboat, elegant women, mystery, love intrigues, nostalgia, perhaps these are my dreams. I knew nothing about Teagan, I started to read her and share her work. We became friends.

“Teagan’s work is colored by her experiences from living in the southern states and the southwest (of the USA). Teagan most often writes in the fantasy genre, but she also writes cozy mysteries and steampunk. Whether it’s a 1920s mystery, a steampunk adventure, or an urban fantasy, her stories have a strong element of whimsy. There are no extremes in violence, sex, or profanity.” Take a look at her Author Page and her books on  Amazon
The Three Things Serial Story, Murder at the Bijou, and A Ghost in the Kitchen

Her latest release is the third in a series of whimsical Roaring Twenties novels. She took us on “a wild ride on a magical trolley through haunted Savannah, Georgia.”

She writes blogs as well. Her blog “Teagan’s Books” contains serial stories written according to “things” from viewers. www.teagansbooks.com
She asks her audience to leave “words” in the blog comments, words that represent things and she will use them in her serial stories. This is a fun way to get the inspiration going.

Teagan is participating in my new book launch and as a token of my gratitude, she is receiving information regarding her zodiac sign: Cancer or the Crab, June 21-July 21. She prefers to identify herself as the “Moon Girl” in fact, the ruler of Cancer is the Moon. Lunar power is feminine, I bet you, Teagan wears a lot of silver jewelry.

A person born under the Cancer sign likes to relax around the water, which is the element of the crab. If Teagan believes in the theory of Feng Shui as a way to harmonize her home and her personal image, then her water element calls for Lavender, Blue, Azure, and Black colors. It doesn’t mean a room and everything in it must be decorated rigorously in one of these colors only. It simply means that a room will have the dominant color of her personality and all the other colors in the room will create harmony and comfort the “Crab” person seeks. White is the dominant color of the person born under the Crab (Cancer) sign. This person is highly imaginative, loves the arts, lives in a mysterious aura, and the powerful lunar energy he/she lives under, impacts the creativity.

I would suggest for Teagan a mysterious and fantasy room. Let’s take a bedroom and let’s turn it into a “silvery” moon atmosphere her soul needs to restore her creativity with the perfect sleep.

Silvery Moon Atmosphere – Valentina Interiors & Designs

Open the photo and the mysterious silvery mood is quite perceptible. White dominates the character of the Cancer sign. White walls to me are very boring, thus I came up with a gradient paint that starts with a relaxing ocean color at the bottom ending in a shaded white color up above towards the ceiling. The floor is a very original blue distressed wood. Bedding is light grey with light yellow designs and a white headboard. I added one lavender velvet accent chair and a few blue chairs. Furniture, sheer window treatment, door frames, and moldings need to be white to echo her dominant zodiac color. I like to see a lot of crystal side lamps and crystal wall sconces to fill the room with beautiful sparkle reflections all over the walls. Crystal quartz scattered throughout the house, a water source, such as a table fountain and a fountain at the front door would be a nice addition. I hope she likes it.

I knew another woman born in the sign of Cancer. She liked only purple, she lived and dressed in purple. I never saw her in the color of her zodiac. She was a busy body woman, always agitated and always looking to grab the next thing. Perhaps she would have been calmer if she had worn colors suitable to her soul.

Now, a bit of shameless promotion for my new book release of ©RED – A Voyage Into Colors – Second Edition . It just happened and a lot of fine authors or artists are helping to take the book on tour.

Let’s Travel In The Cosmos Of Colors, Book Launch | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

I am happy to announce the release of the Second Edition of the book ©RED – A Voyage Into Colors, a book on colors I published for the first time in 2012. The book was performing well until one day I received the classic lemons from the publisher. I was asked to let go of 50% of my profits from the sale of this book. I refused to comply and my book was made “temporarily not available” on Amazon for three years. I am not a person who gets defeated easily. This year, I reworked the book and republished independently the Second Edition of ©RED – A Voyage Into Colors. Now, the ball is back in my court.

RED-A Voyage Into Colors

RED-A Voyage Into Colors – Second Edition – Author Valentina Cirasola

©RED – A Voyage Into Colors – Second edition is a paperback, 124 pages, full of my colorful photography of things that attract me and some of my clients’ homes. After all, what is a book explaining colors, if it doesn’t include colorful pictures? The eyes want to see the beauty and the brain feeds on colors.

Often people refer to shades when they really mean the value, brightness or the darkness of a color.
What is a color without referring to its profile and character? Just like humans, colors have their own character. If we understand how to describe the emotions and sensations they provoke, we will always have a good reaction around the colors we choose, we will subconsciously feel the harmony inside of ourselves and in turn, others will see it and respond positively to us. How people perceive us through colors is very important, colors transmit a message and that is what others see.

What is your message when you get dressed? It doesn’t matter where you go. If you go to grocery shopping with rollers on your head and you are dressed in red, it means you don’t care what others think of you, you dare to be you, the red color will project you as having courage, and the rollers in your hair will pass in a second order. In the same scenario, rollers on your head and you are dressed in black, it means you are trying to hide from the viewers and protect yourself from their criticisms. The colors of your home have messages as well. If your front door is painted red, it means you are an upbeat person; if the front door is yellow, you are an inviting person, cheerful and sunny. My front door is burgundy… exactly…I like red wines and beyond that burgundy door, I added a bit of sophistication to my décor.

Can you sleep and wake up in your zodiac colors? Of course, you can, you were born under those colors, they are natural to your soul.
The moment you came “into the light” many planets revolved over your head making those colors your aura and affected your entire life since that moment. Often, people prefer totally different colors away from their zodiac sign and perhaps totally contrary to their character, simply because they are not aware of the beneficial effects of the colors they were born under or don’t believe it. Colors will determinate their actions, the troubled or unsettled souls living in the wrong colors will continue to feel troubled or unsettled.

With this book, I wanted to depict a colorful bouquet of information regarding home interiors, fashion, and food, all the subjects dear to my heart, each of these subjects thrive on colors. I also delve into explaining colors from a spiritual point of view and how to use them in a technical way. Nature is our best teacher, where all colors are mixed together and co-exist well without rules and prejudices. We can simply copy nature and feel perfect in our choice of colors.

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.
Gauguin said: “Color is the language of the listening eye”. It helps our imagination soar with inner power and mystery”. Allow yourself to experiment with various color combinations and challenge your fantasy!

Valentina

Cheddar and Bluestone | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Welcome to a new episode of Friday Fashion.
This week I participated in a fashion event, an evening of dining with women and a talk on Fashion Disrupters.
I arrived at the venue wearing the outfit in my photo and someone greeted me with a big: “Mercy, mercy, you are sooooo visible!!!”
Perhaps the organizers expected to see invisible people at this event……I don’t know but I was surprised by the welcoming comment.

I sat at the table for dinner and a woman looking at my outfit said: “You need to wear more colors”. We both laughed, I am sure she was joking.
Then I looked around at my table and I saw businesswomen and women entrepreneurs wearing nothing by black and grey. Very sad.

All the women at the event had some very interesting to say, but their faces looked like the light was turned off. Society judges with the eyes in the first 90 seconds of coming in contact with us. The outer shell is what society sees first, and forms an opinion based on the colors we wear and the way we dress. Unfortunately, that’s the way it is.
I wonder what the colors I wore conveyed to the audience that evening: frivolous, carefree, shallow, girlish, attention-grabber, feminine, social climber, fashion slave……

Cheddar_BlueStone

These are the colors of Fall 2019, cheddar and bluestone, the shoes carry the same colors with one band and heels in magenta as an accent.  Bluestone will show up in many collections this coming Fall.
Its profile is not pure, it is tinged slightly with a grey hue. Its character gives a sensation of calm and quiet. Its value is dull and that’s why it is called a muted color. I paired the bluestone colors with a cheddar lacy sweater (BTW, I crochet it) to enliven it with some light.
I am still wondering how I was soooo visible….. Ciao,
Valentina

Blushing Backstage | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Welcome to a new episode of Friday Fashion.

Pantone today emphasizes “Big Sur Sunset” of California. The light on Big Sur is really different compared to the Mediterranean golden light I am used to seeing at sunset. In those parts of California, the coast is rugged, the roads are winding and the view is breathtaking. The sunset reminds me that occasionally in California the gargoyles spit blush wine, a cool, gentle and refreshing wine for summer days. In the Pantone photo, the blush color melts away into the light blue of the ocean. Immediately, when I saw this photo, I thought of the blush color evening bag I gifted my sister. The clutch is very extravagant with an incrustation of glass and rhinestones that can illuminate a city. I would like her to wear it for her soirées at the theatre.

It seems the display I made for my picture, with the crochet blush fingerless gloves and all the jewelry colors go well with the graphic description Pantone makes about Big Sur Sunset.

Will my sister wear the sky blue floral and gem-studded shoes or the black ones?  I will leave it to her choice.
These shoes are an eye-catcher for sure!

The fashion forecasts say that this blush and powdery color will continue in the next winter season. Some women just look washed out in this color, how you wear it, can be interesting or dull. Free People combine a blush velvet jacket with a graphic t-shirt. I adore Free People fashion.

I hope you are having many Summer blush sunsets. Ciao,

My Blood Moon Palette | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

The cosmos was so exciting this week. A rare Super Blue Blood Moon happened, an event that has not occurred since 1866. Apparently it was a fantastic combination of the Moon coming close to Earth, making herself appearing 17 percent larger than usual, then passed through the Earth shadow, which made the Moon appeared red. It was also a full Moon twice in one month. An exceptional feast in the cosmos!
This event coincided with a total lunar eclipse and I missed it. Clouds and fog covered the reddish tint of the Moon.
Reading about this event, I learned that temperature went up to 200 F and fell below 200 F.

I wonder if people felt influenced by the movement of this powerful moon, if their emotions went on a roller coaster, or if many babies will be born this year.

I imagined a variety of reddish colors the Moon changed into as she went through the Earth shadow and that intrigued my fantasy. I was curious to see how an outfit would look in the colors of the Super Blue Blood Moon. From many photos I saw of different photographers, I picked up hues of grey, taupe, mustard, golden beige, dark red, rosy and Bordeaux.
(Click on the photo to view it larger).

My Blood Moon palette was born in my closet. It feels strong and comfortable, warm and creative. The large silky scarf, with a wavy pattern, wraps it all harmoniously and calme it down. I will wear this and I can say to be part of this beautiful Universe in motion. Ciao,
Valentina
