Dr. Faux’s Prescriptions for Living a Colorful Life in Naples Fl
Dr. Faux says, Stop being afraid of color!
ertain colors, when used properly and under a doctor’s care, are known to have many healing properties with virtually NO side effects! What a wonderful color to be wrapped around by at night, to restore us back to a sense of well being.
Did you know that green is an emotionally positive color, giving us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally? Green is also the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living. This is why there is so much of this relaxing color on the earth, and why we need to keep it that way!
Don’t think those accent touches of magenta are there for just decoration! No, no the color magenta is a color of cheerfulness, happiness, contentment and appreciation for what you have acquired and achieved. Most people feel more optimistic when in the company of magenta.
There is magic . . .in the deep-jewel-colored room, warm and mysterious, where you discover its many beauties as you sit, seduced slowly.

Dr. Faux’s Prescription for a Wonderful Evening:
Relax and have a glass of wine with someone you love, in this jewel-toned room. The magical healing powers of the scarlet red walls will stimulate passion, sexual energy and love. Possible side effects include uncontrollable desire for one another, possible birthday of your next child and increase of appetite! (Ever wonder why, so many restaurants use the color red? It stimulates your appetite) If you’re dieting, only stay in this room for short intervals!
Purple or for those that prefer a more glamorous term Aubergine, is a color for Royalties’. It stands for luxury, wealth and sophistication
Dr. Faux says, if you can’t afford a Bentley or Rolls Royce in your life, yet yearn for that feeling of luxury around you. My prescription is two coats of a wonderful Purple, Eggplant or Aubergine on a accent wall or niche, and call me in the morning!
That concludes our show/faux this week. There are many people suffering out there, to tired and distressed walls that need my help. So it’s off to make a few house calls. We will pick up this conversation again soon. Faux you later!
Till then “Keep it Colorful”!
Fauxing it Forward,
Dr. Faux (a.k.a. Spiegel’s Decorative Finishing Studio)
