Have you ever turned beet red after your hubby, wife or life partner has said the most embarrassing thing ever in front of other people?
One of the several times my face turned the color of a bright red apple was when Philip and I visited a dear friend at her home in Portland.
My friend had painted her kitchen this certain color green. I already knew it was an… unusual color choice but it had slipped my mind to warn Philip about it.
When we walked into the kitchen Philip blurted out, “Oh wow, that wall color looks like baby poop green!”
My face instantly went red. Philip is the most loving, wonderful man I have ever known… and sometimes he can let words blurt out of his mouth before his brain has had a chance to filter them.
My friend was gracious enough to not go to her dirty clothes hamper, find a sock, and stuff it in Philip’s mouth for me.
Philip apologized and we laughed about the whole thing later.
One thing these types of experiences have taught me is that if you’re planning on improving your wellness or health space, color is one of the easiest tools you can use.
And choosing the wrong one is one of the most common mistakes I see.
When I wrote The Color Cure: How to transform your healthcare office, clinic or treatment room into an oasis by choosing the perfect paint, I wanted to give you a practical and illustrative DIY guide to help you make the best color choices for your wellness space.
The paint colors I share in the book are based on my fourteen years of health and wellness design experience and case studies of what color palettes work well to nurture and calm the mind, body and spirit.

And whatever you do, don’t tell your friend their walls look like green baby poop… unless, of course, they ask.
Yours in Health,
