Color, for me, is one of life’s great gifts. I am passionate and particular about color in all aspects of my life. The colors I choose to wear and the colors I choose for decorating my home or my garden vary depending on the atmosphere I want to project. Color is so powerful it is studied and used to great effect as a selling tool in advertising. Color plays the same emotional role in our rugs. By simply changing the color scheme, the message the finished piece sends can be a relaxing lilt or a maddening cacophony.
