And we’ll have fun, fun, fun…in the summer sun! I have talked about how our colour preference is linked to memories in previous blogs, so get out there this summer with your friends and family and make some memories!
A positive or negative reaction to colour is often linked to childhood memories. Our judgement of colour is not just based on what we see, but also on what we feel. We really never forget colour.
A colour professional’s job is to ask the right questions to get you to remember those happy memories and the colours that surround them. So surround yourself with paint, decor or clothing with those colours that make you feel good.
Below are some fun summertime images that I hope make you feel awesome. I have also included some fantastic colour combinations that capture those warm summertime memories.
