The use of colour in building design is not only a function of style but can positively impact behavior, psychology and perception. This will be demonstrated during a presentation entitled âHow to Use Colour in Spaceâ", presented by Harris Paints, the Caribbean Champions of Colour, in association with the Barbados Institute of Architects (BIA). The event, scheduled for the Savannah Beach Hotel on Wednesday, March 11th, will feature international speaker Fawn Chang, an award-winning writer, designer and certified master in the ancient art and science of Feng Shui. While in Barbados, Chang will also speak about how colour can influence our experience of space, along with developing custom palettes for projects and the effective pairing of colours. This initiative has been developed through Harris Paints' association with the Colour Guild, an approved provider of the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (CES), and underscores the company's commitment to providing best-in-class colour support to all customers including professional specifiers. "We are very excited to welcome Fawn to Barbados for what we expect will be a highly entertaining and informative session for industry leaders and BIA members,â" said Tracy Johnson, Trade Marketing Manager, Harris Paints. "Fawn is highly regarded in the international design community for her ability to transform lives by transforming space, and as an industry insider, she is on the cutting-edge of the latest colour and design trends. Colour education and training is a critical part of the colour support and tools offered by Harris Paints, which are specially designed to help customers and professionals through every part of colour delivery, from easier selection to enhanced colour performance," Chang has travelled extensively throughout North America and the Caribbean speaking at several industry conferences and universities. During her visit she will be making an additional presentation to specially invited guests at the Harris Paints Training Centre as well as conducting professional development sessions with members of the local and regional sales team.
