The color wheel was invented by Isaac Newton (1642-1726). He worked with the spectrum of visible light, for which the range of colors goes from red to violet (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet -- a six-color sequence that can be memorized as ROY G. BV).
The Definition of Hue
Hue- One of the three attributes of color, the other two being saturation and brightness. Hue is determined by the coloris dominant wavelength within the visible spectrum. A hue is also known as the “true” color, from the hue you can choose to shade darken) or tint (lighten) a color.
When it comes to color things aren’t just black and white…literally!

Okay, I realize that fall is quickly approaching and I should be posting looks that suit the season, but I just couldn't resist this bright and cheery space. It just reminds me of the sun and summer, it's such a light and airy room. Since the forecast here at home (LA) predicts rainstorms all week I thought working on a post for a summer space would cheer me up! This space is also the first one that I'll feature in a series of posts I like to call "Steal Style".
So Soak up the Sun, while you can, if you can; and while you're at it, soak up enough for me...goodness knows after this wet week I'll need it, LOL!
I'm a lover of all things pretty, and I have a passion for design and decor and recently discovered my love of textiles. I'd love nothing more than to make it big in the business of design. I've created this blog to share some of my ideas and opinions, as well as display some of the work that I've done. I also wanted to create a place for readers to check out some cool art, including photos, patterns, paintings, music, dance and of course furniture. Design and art are all around you...open your eyes!
Thanks for visiting,
