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.

Have you caught the colouring in bug yet?

Blog Post - Have you caught the colouring in bug yet

My neighbourhood is full of cafés. And recently there’s been a wonderful buzz of activity – adults colouring in. It seems to have become quite a phenomenon that’s sweeping the world.

There are literally hundreds of colouring in books for adults in book stores and stationery shops and with millions sold there must be something to it.

100_percent_design_colour_talks_2015_Karen_Haller

How exciting, London Design Week is almost upon us. When London immerses itself in all things design, attracting creative minds from around the world.

I’ve been busy working behind the scenes on the 100% Design colour talks programme. I can’t believe it was back in March, by a chance meeting at another colour event (Sean Rogg’s founder of The Waldorf Project with his sensory and intriguing Chapter Two: ‘Colour’) when I met the lovely Claire Barrett from Caro Communications.

The colour wheel is just the tip of the iceberg

The colour wheel is just the tip of the iceberg

Colour is one of those amazing phenomenons that’s fascinated man for centuries. So much so there’s specialist colour scientists, academics and researchers around the world coming up with amazing new colour theories and findings all the time.

Interestingly, the new ways of working with colour coming out of the ongoing research aren’t widely known within the design industries. It’s as if we’re stuck in a colour wheel rut and haven’t moved on. But this is definitely changing.

are we walking into a colourless future?

Dulux Colourless Future

Imagine a world without colour. A world of silver, white and grey. If we are to believe the research carried out by Dulux in March the future looks, well, rather dull, drab and dark.

Why were we so in love with colour and felt free to express our colour choices and experiment in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and then to watch it slowly slide into an almost colour abyss from the ‘90’s?

I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Hammonds furniture as their colour psychology expert for their campaign on bringing colour into the home.

We started with a nation-wide survey as we were really interested to find out exactly what Britain’s views are on redecorating the bedroom, their most popular colour choices and along the way we also found out the weird and wonderful things kept in the bedroom.
