8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 30, 2011 HOMELIVING Warm hues an antidote to GFC fallout Experts are predicting warming tones of yellow and orange as a key antidote to the shadows cast by the global financial crisis. Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux's Colour Forecaster, says: ''The mood of the world undeniably influences our colour selections. ''The need for a renewed reassurance, harmony and tranquillity in an unstable economic climate are mirrored by the desire for freedom, revival and bold abandon. ''The spectrum of yellow tones spans from bold, bright sunshine and canary yellows which spell optimism, renewed vitality and revival, to deep reassuring mustards and natural, earthy oranges. ''Nostalgic creamier tones evoke comforting images of history and the past while light and lemony hues create a feeling of space and freedom from the confines of daily struggles.'' The Design Chalkboard is a flat black acrylic that turns surfaces into an instant chalkboard, great for working at home or just being playful. Colour my workplace energetic With a growing number of people working or studying from home, creating a comfortable and inviting home office space is essential if you want to have a productive and positive working environment. Dulux's leading colour expert Andrea Lucena-Orr describes how clever colour selections that complement surrounding furnishings and accessories can transform a dull and uninspiring work space into a functional and fabulous one. ''Certain colours in the home office space can have a powerful and positive effect on mood, concentration and imagination,'' Ms Lucena-Orr explained this week. ''For example, purple hues are known to enhance lateral thinking and creativity, while various shades of blue have been known to increase conceptual thought processes. ''Green generally has a calming effect that can assist with rejuvenating and balancing the mind and body and orange stimulates communication,'' she says. Something new to hit the market is Design Chalkboard, a flat black acrylic that turns surfaces into an instant chalkboard, perfect for brainstorming ideas and concepts. You can create a functional and fabulous work space by painting furniture and accessories in accent colours to add interest and dimension to your home office space. People working from home should also consider clever storage solutions which maximise space and bringing the outdoors inside with fresh plants, open windows and plenty of natural light.
