The Red Personality

The Red Personality

(Updated from February 24, 2017). How many times have you used the color red in expressing your love, celebration, and expression of happiness? In a year can you even count how many times you showed your love for Red even if it isn't your favorite color? February has always been and will always be the month of red, including Christmas Season. It has brought wonderful and bitter memories around this time of the year where everyone looks up to the date every 14th.

The season of love makes us shiver, giggle and warming our sleeves. In my previous post,(title) I mentioned the psychological effects of red and how it affects us and sometimes our favorite color shows the most definition of our personalities?

According to Empower yourself with color psychology, they are explorers and pioneers of the world. I guess there is truth to this as Red is my favorite color, where we can say that one of the factors having Red to be a favorite color that they are destined to be entrepreneurs or leaders with a grounded attitude despite being impulsive. They are very passionate and optimistic in pursuing what they had set in mind that makes them set apart from the rest as they are always running from time.

Red personality traits enjoy the challenge and thrill of surprise. Being active and action-oriented keeps them going and also symbolizes their achievement thru hard work and passion for life. They've got energy like no other and its spontaneous through their action and how they affect the people close to them. Not all people may like them as it has also its down-side but to know that they could be the one in a million people we have met in our lifetime. Is a wonderful experience because you know that they have contributed something good to you.

If your favorite color is Red then it might describe you and if that's your significant other's favorite. You got to understand that it's just them. What do you think about it? Let me know.

Are Interior Designers for the Wealthy People?


An Interior Designer can work with a different client but client chooses the designer whom they want to work with and this gives an opportunity to the designer to explore and expand its wings towards a certain range in design range, their experience and trust are given to them. Interior Designers are like celebrities, You start from the button when you get better and better you go up; you'll be in the industry for long.

In my opinion, Interior Designers are categorized into three; High End, Middle-Class and Budget Designers, Why?

1. High-End Designers

These Interior Designers associated themselves with high-end clients and high-end projects; They have tapped this Niche through connections, experience, and projects undertaken with them and have developed a high-end taste that attracted to this type of clientele. Mostly these designers were able to create a name in the industry. They have a specific niche that is comparable to high fashion in the fashion industry. 

2. Middle-Class or Middle High Designers
These Designers target middle class or a middle-high clientele, it doesn't mean they don't have a connection in High-End Clients; but has made a specific target market on who they wish to serve yet they still cater to a variety of client. Normally work within a specific budget without having so much designer item on the list or depending on the client. They know what kind of value the client wants to see. 

3. Budget Designers
These are designers who worked with clients who are always on a budget, they targeted this type on clients who as much possible wouldn't spend a dime on their project but there are cases who sees the value of the designer.  This type of designer usually attracts clients who are opposite to high-end. They are newbies in the interior design field, and I have been in this stage when I was starting out but still caters to this category depending on the services that my clients would apply.

Going back to my topic, Are Interior Designer for the Wealthy People? In general, I would say No! because the client sets the budget on how much we will work on the project; Designers can adjust to the requirements and time-frame given by the client; a design project takes two groups to make it work; the client and the designer. 

If you are a client who is on a budget; work on with your top priority project list and any designer would be happy to help you out with it. Read my post How do I know If I Need an Interior Designer? I mentioned consulting an Interior Designer before proceeding in hiring him or her team to know their services offered.

Warm Color + Neutral Color. The use of baby pink signifies the baby is a girl and the gray made the pink stand out in a feminine yet luxurious feel. Grey color goes a long way when changing themes to match. In this, I wouldn't advise that the chandelier to be placed above the crib, just a little bit away would be great. The Pink Curtains gives a statement from the ceiling towards the floor as you could see it transition towards the single seater sofa, crib, and a white rug.

 Greenery. This Nature Themed Nursery Room attracts the kid's attention; as it is spruced up using cartoon figures of animals found in the forest. This is paired with Blue that symbolizes as the sky and Neutral Colored Palette such as browns that signifies the earth, trunk, and soil. I find this having a modern retro vibe in terms of its color and design.

Analogous Color Scheme. The use of Blue, Green and Yellow is obvious and gave a story to this room to a baby boy's nursery room by using dark, medium and light tones to come up with this color palette. Blue is the dominant color applied in Light Paint through walls and Dark Blues in its accessories, While Green signifies the good nature that it gives and added a color of Sunshine Yellow to brighten up the cool colored nursery room.

Black and White Classic. Definitely, I would enjoy this room; this can be used by either a baby girl or boy. This room has applied 85% on White making use of the remaining 15% Black as its Accent. Dad loves this rooms as it has their masculine color on it and wouldn't mind if they have to stay all night in this Black and White Nursery Themed Room.

Checklist for Nursery Room


Most of my friends either got married or got themselves pregnant. Having a baby to them is a blessing and since Most of them are first time mothers; I thought of having a checklist for them and other future mothers to have their nursery checklist. These are just a little hand-outs that can be useful for them.

Nursery Room Colors


Color affects the way we perceive things, make us feel and how we react to it. New born babies recognizes shapes, colors and sound. It's a step nurturing them as they grow older day by day. When it comes to babies, babies are more sensitive to colors; and selecting colors are very important decisions to secure your babies well being. 

The colors used for babies differs; for their room, A Nursery Room has a Tint, a primary color added with white. Let's say Red and to make it lighter White is mixed with Red and the result is PINK; which is now suitable for babies.  The color meanings does not change only the mood it gives to the user. Refresh your mind about the Color Meanings click here.

Cool Colors

Blue Color. The commonly used color for Boys' Nursery Room and some Girls which will depend on the Tint (Color + White) or Shade (Color + Black). Though I prefer dark shade for a Boys Nursery Room; I only find this color to be applicable to a spacious Nursery Room and with natural light coming in. But if you have a Smaller Room; go for a Color that is lighter to maximize the space.

Warm Color
Warm Colors are stimulating but for Nursery Room, Bright and Dark Colors are not advisable; I find it disturbing for parents and baby's. This colors are best used at minimal print or accessorizing in this palette. You don't want to have a screaming baby most of the time.

Pink are commonly used for Girls Nursery Room; this color belongs to the family of Red. Using this color is good for children. This gives them the right amount of adrenaline start with the future kick.
