Black Beauty

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”

The darkness is kept from becoming too sterile thanks to the floral wallpaper. The soft, sandy grey rug anchors the space and allows it to feel mellow. The bed and side-table are traditional, yet the Barcelona Chair, design in 1929 by Mies van der Rohe is anything but!  The Hawthorne Master bedroom in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, was created by Cardel Designs.

OXY by Mirage

OXY is a Mirage project which transforms ceramics into furnishing elements. Painted steel sheets and metal oxidation create unique effects, where lived-in, corroded matter looks sleek. OXY is a range of porcelain stoneware designed for floor and wall tiling. The living room is part bar space, bar street view, part factory and part antiquated library. The mix of surfaces and textiles is all tied together by the unification of the color black.

The Rainbow Connection

It is amazing to see how color can enhance your day. Several ancient religions used to employ chromotherapy, or the healing effects of color. More recently, scientists have developed color mood theory and color psychology. The hues can affect our disposition, appetite, self-esteem, and spirituality. For example, blue represents peace, tranquility, stability and confidence. Black fills one with feelings of sophistication, mystery and depth. Green is soothing, youthful, and associated with fertility. But, in general, the human eye is (supposedly) most attracted to red.

But let’s get real, why choose only ONE color when you can have ALL the colors?

Also in honor of Roy G. Biv’s mood influences, there is a new and exciting project going on worldwide called the “Let’s Colour Project”. Imagine the planet as a giant coloring book. Before we color in the pages with magic markers, crayons, or colored pencils, they are empty and grey…rather drab. Well, the Let’s Colour Project sees the world as a coloring book yet to be filled in! They say, “Grey is out. Gloom is gone. It’s time to live our lives in colour.”

The project, started in March 2010 in cooperation with Dulux house paints, and is working together with local communities, across the globe, and rolling up its sleeves to paint streets, hotels, houses, schools, villas, and squares. More than simply gentrification and renovation, the “Let’s Colour Project” aims to encourage local participation and collaboration. It wants denizens of a town to design and style their own communities! So far London, UK; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Jodhpur, India; and Marseille, Lyon, France; Sapron, Hungary; Casablanca, Morocco, and Paris, France have been colored in!  If you’re far and away from the aforementioned locales, do not fret, anyone can get involved! It doesn’t matter if it’s your bedroom wall or your local school. Everyone can be part of it. Read more about the “Let’s Colour Project“. So far 229,875 liters of paint have been donated to the cause!
