Paint Therapy | personalize your palette, excite your senses
Color Therapy | calm stress, elevate style, be inspired
Take your colors from subliminal to the sublime. Part therapy, part remedy, 100% interior design.
Color acts like a subliminal message that influences your thoughts, emotions and actions. Kim Colwell’s Color Therapy Consultations provide a “color prescription” that supports optimal well-being as much as it enhances the beauty of a space.
“Color can add vibrancy, emotion, light, or love; it can highlight architecture; and it can even become a design feature in and of itself.” Kelly Wearstler
Personal Color “Prescription”
Have you ever wondered which colors are best for you personally, how color may affect your relationship or impact your mood? Which color combinations create disharmony, imbalance, unease? From color diagnosis to remedy, Kim will provide you with personalized color palettes which are created using a methodology that she has grown up with since childhood.
Kim merges disciplines from her fine art background with psychological discovery and the feng shui skills from her lineage. She elevates your decorative style by exploring layers of thought that take your “color prescription” beyond the aesthetic.
Discover which colors are best for your…
- Existing home design
- Feng shui
- Personal emotional wellness
- Creative expression
- Innate sense of balance
Multi-layered modalities are considered
Color can influence thoughts and feelings in similar ways to sights and sounds triggering positive memories from the past, but not all of them are supportive. For instance, when colors are dissonant with no harmonious visual relation they read like clutter or chaos to our sub conscious. Each color has a distinct way that it affects us personally, on a mental and emotional basis.

Kim coordinates colors to your feng shui bagua. Each color is considered in terms of how it works in harmony with the natural elements. Colors are used to direct the flow of energy and bring your home into balance.
A Native American system passed onto Kim by her mother who is a keeper in the tradition, bestowed to her by Grandmother Twylah Hurd Nitsch, then the president of the American Seneca Nation. Kim uses Shamanic Astrology to determine which personal colors are supportive to you on an innate level. Using these principles, each of us have a group of colors which bring us in or out of balance. Shamanic Astrology is an aspect of the Seneca people’s Medicine Wheel of Peace.
As a fine artist turned designer, Kim has a creative, artful way of working with color. Her high-style, high-vibe sensibility elevates your visual landscape while encouraging a restorative ambiance. She can design one striking wall mural, curate the perfect wall color to tie your room together or develop a subtle, monochromatic palette for your entire home.
Whether your personality is bold or demure, your sensibility, needs, desires and style drive the final result.
Each color has its own effect to…
- calm nerves
- uplift mood
