Hello everyone,

Today I am compelled to write a note about this thing called vision. We as Architects and designers are always talking about "vision" with our clients and associates.

This is a very important step not only for an Architect, businessman, entrepreneur, etc... but also for anyone whom would like to change their life and/or improve it dramatically. It does not only apply to Architecture and Practice, but also to many aspects of one's life.

I am attaching this must see video buy an organization that I think very highly of and who also gives out a great deal of very good quality information and tips on all kinds of business, health and related issues.

Watch and truly enjoy this little gem of information and pass it on to someone that is important in your life.
The link is:

Thank you very much for reading this and implementing it.

Until next time.

Mood changing Color tools that Architects and design professionals can use and master.

Color Affects Mood

Color works magic by communicating with our emotions. Color inspires, energizes, soothes, and enlivens. See how switching from a warm color scheme to a cool one changes the mood of a living room.
  • Warm Color Scheme

Warm Color Scheme
The sun-drenched shades of red, yellow, and orange are warm, cheery, and intimate. Because warm colors seem to advance, they make small rooms appear smaller and large rooms more cozy.
This living room with coral-colored walls invites you to snuggle in with your favorite novel. Layering on neutral shades -- such as those found in the sofa fabric, the white-washed table, and the iron lamp -- helps balance and calm the intensity or brightness of the wall.
Note how the warm coral shade blends the tabletop accessories as a unit by softening their outlines, rather than defining each one separately.

Cool Color Scheme
Nature's fresh, spring shades of blue, green, and purple are known as cool colors. These serene hues calm and soothe and appear to recede, making a room seem larger. Of all hues,green is considered the most neutral color in terms of temperature.
Because these tones can make a room feel colder, these colors make sense for a sunny room where the brightness needs to be held in check. Against the green backdrop, the tabletop accessories stand out as individual elements because cool colors reinforce their outlines.
