"Color! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams," wrote Paul Gauguin in the last century. Fernand Leger said, "Man needs color to live; its just as necessary an element as fire and water." And Chagall said, "Color is all. When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music, and everything is vibration." Throughout our evolution, color has always played a vital part, creating harmony in the world and impacting health, wellness and every day living. Today, Gillian C.

For 23 years Interior Designer Sheri Peterson has built her reputation on relationships developed with clients, suppliers, and trades. With a portfolio that includes residential, commercial, and hospitality work (even a Canadian Coast Guard ice breaker ship!) her strengths are rooted in those relationships, but also her ability to envision how a space is used and what the finished result will look like. It all begins with communication. She listens to the client first and tries to make the decision-making process as quick and easy as possible. She believes in a collaborative approach, as everyone from the home or business owner to contractor and tradespeople have expertise to share. They all contribute to complete a successful job. Most importantly though, her expertise is that projects are inspired and often begin with colour. Colour and combinations of colour have an interaction with humans on all levels. If the colour is not exact, the perfect ambiance will not be created. It must be right- it’s the foundation, spirit, and mood of the project. Past commercial projects have included The Uplands Golf Club, The Chateau Victoria Hotel and Suites, The Oak Bay Beach Hotel, The Accent Inns, countless professional’s offices, along with small restaurant and retail spaces. Residential Projects range from single room renovations, many high end kitchen and bathroom renovations, to new custom home construction both on Vancouver Island and the lower mainland.
