Today's Colour story is inspired by the break in conversation, RIFT by General Paints.
Colour Makeup of RIFT is from pure YELLOW, pure red, and tints of white. In saturation this is a bright, bold HOT colour. The mood can be contradicting setting contentment and yet as diverse as a road trip.
The word Rift is a complex in meaning, from an opening made by splitting - a break, a break in friendly relations or difference of opinion. In reading the meaning I then look at how this colour changes the mood of when I first looked at it, being a colour of contentment- lost in fields of wheat illuminated by the sun. Dreamy and content. However now I expand my mood to include a break in space, engaging into another room a different conversation.
In Interior Design I would start that break in space with the conversation by introducing something of a large scale that doesn't necessary belong but adds interest. Possibility with art, in a light fixture or in wallpaper.
I also relate RIFT to music, the break when a musician introduces their opinion. So as you gather with family and friends on Friday evening, solving the worlds problems of this week, breaking conversations with your RIFT. Keep the background alive with various musical rifts, enjoy the moments that allow us to reflect on LIFE.
