Launching Introduction to Colour Psychology course

Introduction to Colour Psychology course_Karen Haller
I receive so many emails asking what colour psychology is, what’s it all about and how can I learn more about it.

Usually I point them in the direction of my Advanced Colour Group Course, which has just had its summer launch (exciting!), but that’s not always an option.

So I’ve decided to do something special – offer one of the modules from the course – Introduction to Colour Psychology, as a standalone offering so that you can access the information you’ve been asking me for at an affordable price and in a way that can easily fit into a busy schedule.

Make Yourself At Home with colour

Get Living London_Make yourself at home campaign_Karen Haller

For the past couple of months working alongside one of my clients Get Living London (GLL), which rents and manages homes in East Village E20, we’ve been looking at how people in Britain use colour in their homes to promote GLL’s unique offering of allowing their residents to paint and decorate their homes.

That being the case I thought it would be an interesting exercise to chart how the wave of colour has ebbed and flowed over the past decade and, more importantly, where we are now in relation to current colour thinking.
