It would appear that my post on COLOR really struck a chord with people. It has opened an entire dialog on my professional Linked-in site.
Here are some of the comments that folks have made:
I have been an Interior Designer for over 35 years. Your information explaining how colors relate (or don’t) to each other is the best I have ever read. You speak in a way that professionals or a beginner can understand. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you Joan!
And then there’s this from Lynn Long
•” When I was about 12 years old (long ago), my mother (very non-artistic) took a class in color and learned a system called “Color Key” where colors were organized into two groups based on whether they had a yellow or blue base tone, resulting in a warm or cool impression. For instance, even a yellow could have a blue base and be cool toned, almost a brittle yellow. The idea was that you could not combine colors from these two groups because they would clash, almost imperceptibly. The other main idea was that people’s preference, and even their skin tone and the clothes that looked good on them, always ran to warm or cool tones – they would feel uncomfortable in a room or in clothes with the opposite color base. There was a paint chip fan with the two color groups.
Funny how I have remembered this, and it has proved very true and more useful for Interior Design than all the art and color education I have received over the years. It goes along with Cindy’s blog and this topic somewhat.”
