One scarcely realizes how much color can affect one’s mood until you happen to find yourself in a room where the paint is actually something other than white. Maybe you visit a friend’s house who is a fantastic interior decorator, or travel to the Caribbean, India or Latin America where they embrace dramatic color. Even a slight change in color can positively impact your mood, making you more productive, relaxed, even happy.
Back in 2012 Arkitip curated a extraordinary project with Comex & The Ace Hotel Palm Springs.
Five rooms at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs were repainted from the basic white using 3 color combinations provided by Comex based on the color schemes presented in the Comex trend color books. We invited five media reporters to stay for a long weekend switching rooms every night to experience the color in each room.
They then shared those experiences with us and as customary we created a video to document the process and share the results.
We then again partnered with Comex using the theme of color to select a group of artists to create whatever they wish using Comex supplied paint.
Artists used the magazine as a medium to give the viewer a closer look at their results. The selected artists were encouraged to dig deeper into their process to showcase the inner workings of their creations.
The culmination of these efforts has been published here in a hand numbered limited edition, neatly housed with a cobranded Comex + Arkitip paint brush.
