City Palettes


City, the word itself makes us think of excitement. What is it about a city that makes us think that way? A city is a place of many possibilities, of extreme contrasts and high drama. City palettes as applied to buildings must be representative of their environment or they will look out of place. This is true for any building in any location!

I always think of cities as places where men and women dress up to the nines. Apply that same dressy attitude to a city facade and you may get a bold color on the front door dressed with highly polished brass accents. Think again about a chic city woman with bold red lipstick and gold jewelry…you get my drift? That bright red door which looks so smart and so right on a city street often looks like the door to Santa’s workshop if placed in the suburbs The city palette is about that bit of “eye candy” as relief in a sea of concrete and stone greyness…we absolutely crave it!
