Art comes naturally to children. They effortlessly express their choices in colors, patterns, shapes— and end up with an intriguing image. You’re not just impressed by it because it’s your child (or grandchild). There’s real aesthetic value (along with breathtaking fun). Picasso once said, “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
I’ve seen living spaces professionally designed with the same fabulous color palette as the tutu ensemble my niece just put together. I’m not kidding. See below.
As children, we express ourselves intuitively. Through growing up, we learn to judge that intuition, to hinder it, or ignore it completely. As adults, we strive to reconnect to these instincts—to express ourselves effectively.
People who are bold enough to experiment with color exude confidence. Encourage them and look to them for inspiration. Make bold color choices. Choose colors to display the mood you want to invoke. It is indeed an effective way to stand out.
