Think Bella! Do you have Bold Colors & Interior Design Ideas that… Roar?

Posted on August 21, 2014

The Interior Design process can be an intimidating process at times. If you go it alone, the many decisions can be overwhelming.

If you work with an Interior Designer, Interior Decorator or Artisan, they can make this process much smoother and uneventful.

But Interior Design is a negotiated process. Everyone has an opinion and it can become a test of wills, who’s idea will win out.

If you are someone whose Interior Design Colors and Ideas are outside the common colors used today, you will have a hard time gaining a majority opinion with your Bold Colors and Ideas.

My point is that there are a Rainbow of Ideas for Color and Texture to choose from. If you lean towards the Bold, then you need to make sure you are working with someone that understands your likes and passion for a more… “Livid and Vivid Color Scheme”.

If you are working with someone that smothers your ideas before they ever make the “Design Board” or “Mood Board”, then you need to consider finding a New Interior Design member that has the ability to reach and visualize color themes that are pushing the comfort zone fences down and presenting a whole new world of… Wow.

Katy Perry says in her song “Roar” –

“I use to bite my tongue and hold my breath, scared to rock the boat and make a mess. So I sit quietly, agree politely”

So all I am saying is….Don’t be Afraid to Speak Up for your Unique Ideas! This is your project too, This is your Time to …. Roar!

Be confident in your ideas. Let everyone know what you like and want.  If your goal is create a room that Roars in Color, Texture and Pace, then go for it.

If you would like to share your ideas, you will love our Interior Design Process. We are looking for Wow projects and Owners that are committed to this challenging goal of creating the “Wow Effect”.

“Kathy and I went to see Katy Perry in concert this month to celebrate our birthdays. The lyrics in her song “Roar” Gave me the idea for this post. Katy Perry’s Concert Roar with Vivid Colors, Lights and Sound. Photos of pre-concert party taught us how to Roar for the concert. (Not sure why I am sharing these pictures, I think… I’m just trying to get everyone excited about Interior Design)”

“Every Home Deserves a Room that ….. Roars!”

Kathy & I, caught up in the energy and fun of the Katy Perry pre-concert party.
