Color is an important element in designing every room in your home. D&A Designs are masters in creating the perfect look for each room in your home employing various techniques and elements that includes your choice of colors. What makes D&A Designs so unique is their unconventional use

of color. Bold designs with splashes of color to excite the senses distinguish D&A Designs from other designers. Colors touch our emotions and impact our mood to create an atmosphere that evokes feelings ranging from cheerfulness to the depressed. When used on the walls in our home, traditionally, these colors would have a profound impact on the atmosphere of a particular room or rooms in our home. The ceiling represents one-sixth of the space in a room, but too often it gets nothing more than a coat of white paint. In fact, white had been considered

the best choice for ceilings for decades. However, as a general rule, ceilings that are lighter than the walls feel higher, while those that are darker feel lower, yet lower doesn’t have to mean claustrophobic – visually lowered ceilings could evoke cozy intimacy – dark walls could make a room seem smaller, and light walls could make a room seem much larger. 1


Red is a warm, positive, intense color that stimulates and excites the brain. It is the only color associated with power, passion, and energy that has even been proven to raise your blood pressure, speed respiration and your heart rate. With such intensity, this positive color makes a strong first impressions, especially when used in an entry way.

Red is also a great color when used on an accent wall of any room in which you may want to stimulate conversation, however, it is considered to be too strong or stimulating for a bedroom.

Depending on how red is used in a room, it could affect the peace and harmony you might feel when spending long periods of time in that room. Being surrounded by too much red could make you feel irritable, agitated, and angry, while too little red in a room could make you feel cautious, manipulative, and even fearful. D&A Design could help you make the best use of this positive color to create the desired atmosphere for your room. 2


Cool colors range from green to blue to purple and give a feeling of relaxation. These colors are often passive, soothing and restful to create a feeling of harmony in the home.

Blue is a cool color that could be sedative, calm or even sad. Psychologically, the color blue could evoke feelings of trust, security, cleanliness, and order, so it is no surprise that this color (unlike the color red) slows down your heart rate, respiration, and brings down your blood pressure. It also shows creativity, intelligence and symbolizes loyalty, strength, and wisdom. When used to accentuate the primary color, the room takes

on a completely different feel as shown here in designs completed by D&A Designs. Varying shades of blue could quickly become chilly or sad when in a room that receives very little sunlight. 4


The Magic of Black and White The color black could signify elegance, sophistication, power and sexuality, as well as wealth. Some experts maintain that every room needs a touch of black to ground the color scheme and give it depth. Black is a very powerful color that symbolizes class and when combined with other colors could have a very strong impact.

The color black fits in almost any design, adding contrast that makes the other colors stand out. However, it is also considered a color of the hidden, the mysterious, and the unknown to create a sense of mystery. Psychologically, the color black relates to protection against emotion – a barrier between itself and the outside world – providing comfort and hiding its vulnerability, insecurity and lack of confidence. The color black is the absence of light and the absorption of all other colors. It hides things, while the color white brings them into the light. Black also represents power and control, but could be intimidating, unfriendly and unapproachable because of the power it radiates. 5


Warm colors range from red to orange to yellow and tend to be strong, active, stimulating colors that evoke feelings of warmth and coziness. When these energetic colors are added to other colors, the warmth could be subtle or it could be strong.

Testimonials: A sampling of countless testimonials from clients satisfied with the work completed by D&A Designs.

JESTURDIVANT (03/05/2018) I had the distinct pleasure of working with D&A Designs on two projects. While working with this company, they have time and time again, proven to be one of the TOP home improvement businesses in the DMV area. Not only are they professional, I've found that they pay close attention to detail and consistently exceeds my expectation. The ability and willingness to work with minimal supervision is enhanced by their ability to work well with others. They REALLY make you feel as if you are apart of the family. A “quick study,” they have a track record of being able to “hit the ground running,” regardless of the size, scope, or duration of the assignment. It is rare to find individuals who reflect the perfect blend of teamwork and expertise. I, however, have found these traits in D&A Designs. I would HIGHLY recommend this company to EVERYONE. If you're looking for an "UPGRADE", let them be your source. Should you have any questions and/or comments, please feel free to contact us via email: faithunited7905@yahoo.com Isi O (03/04/2018) In fall 2017 I started following D&A Designs on Instagram. I was in awe of all of their transformation projects. I was amazed at how they take clients thoughts, ideas, and dreams and are able to make it a reality. I didn’t think that I would be able to afford the quality of work that they delivered. However, watching their page and videos, they are always very responsive to their followers/fans. So after closing on my new house, I decided to reach out to this business for a consult for a future project. I received an immediate response and was able to setup an appointment. During my consult I admittedly only had general and vague idea of what I wanted. I knew what colors I wanted, I knew what purpose I wanted the project to serve and what style. When I first met Dee and Al....... I immediately knew I was in good hands and made the right choice choosing their company. They are both very genuine people, they are quite professional and you can instantly tell that they have a passion for this industry they are in. Dee walked through and started immediately spitting out ideas and where she stopped Al picked up. They are a true team. Once the project started I was excited. Everything that was told to me prior to the start, is exactly what happened. The contractors, decorators ..... the entire staff have all been very professional. When they finished my original project I was in shock. I looooove the results. The room is beautiful. It’s even better than what I imagined. You can tell the entire team takes pride in their work and that D& A Design aims to please their clients. I was so pleased that I have continued to work with them on more rooms in my house. Both rooms are amazing! My friends love the rooms and the level of detail and quality displayed in both rooms. They can’t wait to come see it in person and have since started following them on social media. If you are looking to personalize your home.... to have a “One of a kind look”..... with quality furniture and products I highly recommend this professional team. I am 100% happy with my house and I look forward to continuing to work with Dee and Al and the rest of their team. D.B. (10/12/2016) Please read before hiring D & A Designs! If you are looking for a contractor who will give you the best bang for your buck, then this is the contractor for you. This contract company came to my home, listened (patiently) to me describe the type of work I wanted completed, and turned my ideas into an unimaginable “work of art” at a low cost. They understand the term “on a budget” and they are not pushy sales people either. I was kept abreast of the work being completed throughout the entire process. My opinions mattered! The business owners and their contract workers were always pleasant and professional. I appreciate the manner in which both owners treated my home and most importantly my family. I have had several other companies visit my home and provide quotes and each of them gave a price that not only was higher but their end product (via the pictures they showed) were plan, simple, and of a “cookie cutter” quality. I loved coming home and seeing the transformation of my home. These contractors definitely are passionate about the work they do and have a gift of being able to make your ideas “POP”. Their services are so amazing; I have already hired them to work on another project. Another great quality is their ability to communicate via email and text. I am often in meetings during the day and cannot easily accept telephone calls, so the ease of using technology works for me. If you are looking for a contractor to enter your home and passively listen to your desires, give you quick measurements without a smile, and charge you big bucks for every minor adjustment or request; do not hire this contractor. Go with the “Average Joe”; which D & A Designs is positively not.
