I have mentioned before that I belong to a women’s networking group – we meet for lunch in a hotel in Edinburgh every month – lovely! It feels terribly indulgent, but at the same time you are learning loads and meeting people who are inspirational and ever-helpful.
Someone always gives a short talk and last time it was Jane Chrumka, of Harmony Ridge Designs, a trained interior designer who works as a colour consultant.
Jane is passionate about her subject and lives and breathes colour. She offers her services to businesses and individuals who are uncertain as to how to use this powerful communicator. With our current reliance on the internet we are communicating all the time visually – how often do you make a phone call nowadays? And colour and pattern can reinforce our message very effectively.
She gave a thought provoking presentation about colour in nature, the workplace and the home and held a prize draw for a place on one of her workshops and I was the lucky winner!
I had a lovely morning with Jane and the other participants, looking at colour and talking about what we want from it and what we look to it for: how we dress; how we choose certain colours for our home; our business environments and stationery.
I came away more certain of my likes and dislikes, with a deeper understanding of why I like certain colours and why I don’t…I would recommend anyone who has not had their colours ‘done’ to get in touch with Jane for a one to one and let ‘wondering what to wear’ and ‘how to inject colour into your home’ become an anxiety of the past!
The next workshop date is Sat 26th April – book before the 31st March for an early bird discount!
