GREEN is a color that in Europe and in the United Stated is mostly associated with status and prosperity. From the Middle Ages to the 19th century, it was a color often worn by bankers, merchants’ country gentlemen and others who were wealthy but not members of the nobility.
ORANGE is the color obtained from mixing red and yellow. Every shade/tint of this color depends on the proportion of the two main colors, adding more white or black to the mixture.
Until the 15th century, orange color was used in Europe, but without the name; it was simply called yellow-red. Portuguese merchants brought the first orange trees from Asia in the late 15th and early 16th century, along with the name Sanskrit naranga, which gradually became part of several European languages: naranja in Spanish, laranja in Portuguese, and orange in English. Therefore, comes the origin of the name ORANGE.
However, oranges (the plant itself and its cultivation) became popular in northern Europe only in the 17th century because of the invention creating heated greenhouse for plants, a construction type known today as an “orangerie”.
PINK is a pale tint of red that is a combination of red and white pigments and based on the percentage of each color it can be lighter or darker. It was first used as a color name in the late 17th century. In Europe and the United States, pink is mostly associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity, and romance.
In many languages, the word for pink color is based on the name of the rose flower: rose in French, roze in Dutch, rosa in German, Latin, Portuguese, Catalan, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, and Norwegian, rozoviy in Russian, różowy in Polish.
Colors have power! Every color has its vibration, energy, and meanings; it transmits feelings into surroundings. YELLOW stands for hope, happiness, positivity, and joy; it increases mental activity, activates memory, and encourage communication.
When do we need the service of an ADVOCATE? When we have a problem to solve. So, the person to whom we will feel confident to delegate a question must transmit confidence, professionalism, trustworthiness, have a respectful attitude, and be ready to give the best of advice and assistance to solve the issue.
All these characteristics we can transmit from the first moment through our ATTITUDE (the way we walk and the way we speak) and the way we DRESS (clothes, accessories, and curate looks). All these factors must be in resonance, coherence to our provided services.
Let's talk about colors!
Today I want to share with you my reasons why I LOVE RED as a color, and hopefully, I will inspire you to love it too. There is no other color that can bring so much power, energy, and passion into your life, more than this one.
Like many of you, I love to surround myself with B E A U T I F U L things, and S H O E S are one of them! Moreover, I am continually looking for interesting pieces and experiment with different styles to find my DNA in fashion. Sometimes I make great choices; other times, I fail miserably. But I accept that as part of the process.
As an INTERIOR DESIGNER, I feel the need to express my personality through colors, textures, and a mix of a classic capsule wardrobe with unique pieces. I compose my wardrobe applying the same principles I use when decorating a space:
- Mix high-end brands with low-cost to create unique and balanced looks
- Prefer natural materials over synthetic fibers
- Have a Signature Style: in dressing, make-up, and hairstyles
