Colour Facts For June 2015
  1. If you thought pink is a colour that represents the feminine, think again. Pink is a soothing colour, commonly used to paint the walls in prisons and mental health care facilities to assist in subduing those in need of calm and tranquility. So, pink definitely has a useful place and a purpose, other than decorating a little girl's room or Barbie's house.

  2. Colours have an amazing effect on us humans. They beatify our world, add emotions and energy. However, these same colours can be frightening to some. Chromophobia (also known as Chromatophobia) is a rare, persistent, irrational fear of colours. People with this disorder react strongly to certain shades or tones or try to avoid colours altogether. Some signs and symptoms are: nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, feelings of panic, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, anxiety, light headedness, headaches and trembling. Effective treatment involves methods and techniques that include systematic desensitization.

  3. Christian Louboutin, the famous shoe designer won trademark protection for his women's shoes with red soles. They have exclusive rights to use the colour red on the inner soles of their high-heeled shoes. It's like Tiffany's blue box and Cadbury's purple packaging — the red sole has been an iconic signature for these designer shoes for 20 years and now they even have the legal rights to it.

When you're painting your entire home, it's bound to take you several days so instead of washing at the end of a long painting day, wrap your paint brush in plastic wrap and freeze it. Take your brush out of the freezer 10-15 minutes before you're ready to paint again and your brush will be ready to go. This saves clean-up time, saves paint from going down the drain, and helps you jump into your project faster!

Using a putty knife and spackling paste, first fill the hole with paste. With the flat end of the knife, smooth over the putty to be sure it completely fills the hole and also scrape the excess putty from the wall. Scrape as much spackling paste as you can from the wall without disturbing the filled hole. Wait for the paste to fully cure before sanding.
