A Palette Of Colors: Before and After pictures that come Alive with Color!

Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

I LOVE to use color in a space.  And I love it more when my clients agree with me. Too often their tastes vary from white to off white :)  The following pictures are a few quick before and after shots of what we created with Color in a Wholistic Center.  The clients were thrilled (and so were the patients :)!  We wanted each treatment room to have it's own feel, depending on the service the patient was getting.  This is called the "Cafe of Life" in lovely Long Island, New York.

When your clients are open to painting, do they want to go the "safe" way?  I'm glad these people could see what color can do for a space!

 P.S.  How do I separate the pictures????????  I'm trying :)

Great job!  I love the yellow waiting room.

I just picked colours for a Car dealership.  Yellow and Orange! - I'll post pics when they are done and I have them!

Beautiful color choices, Carole.  I am sure that the patients do appreciate the much warmer waiting room and treatment rooms.

It's all about colour

What a difference color makes.  It is an especially important consideration for any health or holistic treatment center.  Nice job!

What a great transformation and living proof that color can make an incredible difference.

As for how to post the pictures side by side, I struggle with that myself.  I end up playing with it until I have it right.  You might also want to do a search on posting pictures and see what you find.  I thought I had saved it by bookmarking but evidently I didn't.

Hi Carole,

What a difference you made!  The "Cafe of Life" really did come alive with color!

The artwork and sculptures really stand out against the colorful background!

OK Carol, share with us your FS principles you used. And did you add little fountains in the rooms? Inquiring minds want to know...

HI Sheron,

Just a money frog and some beautiful crystals.  Although the OWNER wanted one of those "lucky cats" and he got one :)  And the blessings...

Wow Carole, that's about the worst spam I've ever seen!  Go ahead and delete that comment between me and your awning pics. 

About the pictures.  Click Edit under your post.  Then click beside the picture on the right with the yellow walls.  Use your arrow key to go one click to the left, so your cursor is between the pictures.  Then just hit the space bar a couple times. 

Or you can click the picture (little squares will pop up around it) and then click on the tree (photo) icon.  A box will pop up.  Click the second tab, then that first drop down box.  You can set the picture to be to the right, and the other to the left if you like.  Warning: this will "wrap" your words around your picture, you may have to edit a little if you do it this way.  However, it's also useful for when you want to add a picture and not have the words be separated.

Hope that's not more than you wanted to know!  And BTW, LOVE the color!!
