Last weekend I went to the Vancouver Home & Interior Design Show. As I walked along I came upon a booth by a good client of mine (he’s in the renovation business).
Looking at the WRONG, pale colour on the walls I nudged him and said “Hey why didn’t you call me to pick the colour?”, he said “I did–this is it”. It looked MINT GREEN and you know what the colour was? CC-680 Raindance!!
Every time I get just a little too smug about my colour advice, it takes me down a notch or two. I had to tell you the story, it was just so funny, me asking him why he didn’t call me!!
So there you go, today’s colour lesson of the day. In a huge stadium with ugly florescent lighting, the colour should be twice as dark as you think it should be to get the effect you want.
I was so cranky I walked away without getting a photo! But that [above] was what it was supposed to look like!
