A Practical Guide to Color for Designers
Liza Riguerra – Riguerra Design – Owner, Principal Designer
Thursday, June 21, 2018 – 12:00-1:00pm EDT
Registration closes 2 hours before event begins.
In this webinar, Liza Riguerra will present a practical approach to thinking about color and incorporating color into a kitchen and bath design. Her approach is based on color theory fundamentals, but her lessons are presented in an approachable and practical way.
She will describe seven practical tips for thinking about color in design, including common missteps and how to avoid them. Examples include: 1) How a color is affected by the color around it, 2) How to use black effectively, 3) How to consider color undertones in neutrals, 4) How to achieve a pleasing color contrast between elements, and 5) How colors change in low light situations.
Liza will show how to incorporate color into any kitchen and bath design by presenting examples of both traditional and contemporary styles that range in color scheme from neutral to bold. For example, attendees will learn how to introduce color in materials (counters, cabinets, tile), appliances, and unexpected but delightful places such as the ceiling, inside shelving, or even toe kicks.
Webinar attendees will leave with a better understanding of how colors work together and greater confidence in how and where to introduce color into their designs.
At the end of this session you will:
- Explain the essential characteristics of color.
- Discover seven practical tips for thinking about color in design.
- Identify specific ways to incorporate color into a kitchen or bath design.
