How to Choose Colors for Your Mosaic Project | Seattle Custom Mosaic Art

Emotions of Color

Did you know that colors can stimulate a physical response in your body? Different colors create different chemical reactions, which then elicit specific emotions. Studies have shown, for example, that blue actually slows your heart rate and can lower blood pressure. 

Psychology of Color

I absolutely adore the psychology of interior design, and specifically, the psychology of color. In my own life, I find that color directly affects my level of contentment, influencing the decisions I make everyday. How my living space feels is important to my family life and happiness, while the feel of my work space feels affects my creative business.

Choosing Colors for Your Mosaic Mirror Project

Color is a critical design element, and I am constantly fascinated by the power of color to affect our emotions and our lives. Choosing the right palette is fundamental to creating artwork that “feels right” to my clients—and to my students creating their own work in my classes.

Gray: serenity, calmness, sophistication, serious

I love this mirror because it evokes a soft soothing monochromatic palette with a little play on light that adds a bit of energy and excitement.

Emotional Color Wheel

Consider the emotions that you are pulling into your artwork and into your space. This color wheel is a good starting point to begin exploring the power of color.

Zetamari Student Feature Becky | Seattle Mosaic Classes

Something I love about teaching mosaic classes is when a student is in awe of what they are able to create with some guidance and supplies. Creating your own masterpiece is a wonderful way to add personality to your home and spark your creative spirit. Best part? Experience isn't necessary! 

Becky was a first-time mosaic student and by taking a Zetamari mosaic class, she was able to create this gorgeous, leaf-shaped mosaic mirror.

Here's what she had to say about her class experience:

"I was mesmerized by student work that I saw on the Zetamari website, which I was introduced to by my sister in law. I was anxious for my first class but once I met Angie that all melted away. Angie provides a very confident supportive learning environment. Angie explains every aspect and step to creating your mosaic masterpiece in the most basic terminology. Angie keeps class size to a minimum which allows her to provide support as often as I needed her. She will help with design but encourages your creativity rather than taking over your project. In a day and a half I walked away with the most beautiful mosaic mirror. Now I look at everything and think that needs some mosaic art. I have signed up for my next class and am excited to get creative again with Angie!!"
