1. Sound Stone Massage & Spa (Crestwood, MO) relocated to Watson Plaza. The owner built out the space from the ground up. With the perfect color palette situated on a high gloss black floor this space has redefined Spa design. Rave client reviews call the space “refreshingly calm”, “oh so full of comfort”, “the spa you haven’t seen before, oh my god it has color”, and “can’t wait to come again and again”. Since moving into the new space Sound Stone has reported record increases in revenues in both services & retail product and, a marked increase in return clients, the heart of any successful business. Entering the Sound Stone lobby clients immediately feel the energetic calmness and are drawn into the dreamy moonlight Iris colored hallway - calming the mind, body & soul. My favorite colors: Pantone’s Apple Green and Sapphire Fog.
2. St. Louis Area Food Bank (Bridgeton, Missouri) was in need of a major color make over. The color programming project was quite exhilarating for this color analyst from the get go. Intense research resulted in the Food Bank’s color palette being more than “food for thought”. Much was considered in developing the color palette: mission statement, logo, function & productivity of staff & volunteers, space plan & flow, and of course existing finishes that could not be changed. The seventeen selected hues reflect the goodness of the earth; the nourishment of the food it produces and the energy of the sun and rain needed for survival. Once the project is completed everyone - from volunteers, to staff, to executive board, to corporate donors – will experience the Food Bank and its generosity in a different “light”. My favorite colors: Sherwin Williams’ Kind Green, Portobello, and White Truffle.
3. We often create a blind color eye as we grow accustom to our ailing space. A dermatologist’s office at Missouri Baptist Hospital (Town & Country, MO) is getting a shot in the arm – a total color infusion. The color programming for this space includes blending fifteen rooms with ten different functions all centered around the existing carpet, VCT tiles, and laminate cabinets – none of which coordinate with each other due to the different timing of remodel projects over the past 10 years. This current recoloring project will change the cold blue-gray space into a warm flowing space by adding tans, warm greens & blues – yes cool colors can be warm. Waiting patients will be treated to a reception room that makes waiting less painful. The exam rooms will be less sterile and the staff work stations will be worker friendly. The hallway wallcovering will coordinate with the floor, leading staff and patients to their destination with reduced glare from the overhead fluorescent lighting. Favorite colors: Sherwin Williams’ Sand Dollar and Contented.
