Color is a force with the ability to change a space, a mood or even a mindset. This is especially true for architectural interior design, where there is opportunity to use color intentionally. Color has the ability to affect experience by enhancing the architectural form. In this webinar, presenters will discuss the color and material choices of several projects, focusing on design requirements, constraints and desired effects.
