H&H‘s Adena Leigh chats with Tiffany Pratt on finding your signature palette, diy projects and her new line of spray paint.

While most of us online in a world of neutrals, designer, stylist as well as HGTV character Tiffany Pratt’s like of color is palpable. Recognizable by her kaleidoscopic hair as well as vibrant spirit, Tiffany boldly utilizes color in her style work to produce lively, cheerful interiors — her most recent prominent job being the wonderful teal-and-pink Cafe CanCan in Toronto. Author of This Can Be Beautiful, Tiffany coaches clients on exactly how to integrate color into their lives, as well as she spills a few of her top tricks below.

House & Home: What influenced your fearless approach to color?

Tiffany Pratt: I like that word you’re using, it’s so fantastic. If you want the truth, it was never a mindful decision — I believe I’ve just always had such a strong response to color. I believe all of us have colors that we should have in our lives that bring us joy. Everyone’s colors are different, as well as I believe that’s what my task has been as a designer — to bring color to people in a method that makes them happy.

H&H: What is your signature palette?

TP: currently my signature combination has bit a more soft tones. In my home, I’ve got huge hits of teal, dirty increased pink, electric orange, soft minty-green, as well as pink in every shade. Oh and purple — purple is making a new comeback in my life. So you see the teal as well as the purple talking, as well as then you’ve got this dirty rosey minty business, however the whole foundation of my personal like is 50 shades of pink and white. I like white — I believe in a truly definitive, verified amount of white space, contrary to prominent belief. With this conclusive amount of white space, anything is possible when it comes to color.

H&H: exactly how do you suggest others find their signature palette?

TP: I always tell people, the very best thing to do when you’re looking for your personal combination is to be sensitive to what you react to throughout your day — so if you’re walking past a cake shop as well as you see a color of icing that you believe is beautiful, or you’re looking at advertisements in a magazine as well as you’re truly responding to a specific ad. I believe that all of the things we gravitate towards are hints to what we love.

H&H: You just recently worked together with Krylon on a line of spray paint. There are 16 shades in the collection — exactly how did you choose what colors to include?

TP: It was extremely difficult for me. full disclosure, we were planning on doing an eight-color line, however I couldn’t choose, so we doubled the line. I’m an artist as well as I never just squirt paint out of the tube as well as put it on a canvas — it’s always mixed with something else. So I felt like spray paint should be treated the exact same way. I’ve gone ahead as well as integrated a few of the colors to show the consumer exactly how to do it (see above).

H&H: What are some easy DIYs you suggest doing with spray paint?

TP: I always tell people to begin small. Something as simple as a flower pot or a vase, or, you know, I’ve been crazy to state stuff like pull out your old costume jewelry. It truly can be something that is little as well as simple to achieve. It’s inexpensive, it’s simple to get your hands on, as well as it takes 10 minutes to do. then all of a unexpected you have this gorgeous thing — it’s immediate gratification.

H&H: Do you have any type of other affordable tips for somebody looking to produce their dream space?

TP: I always tell people not to get rid of what they have. I believe that looking at your stuff as well as reworking it into a room, spraying something out as well as adding some new textiles is a truly affordable as well as simple method to breath new life into your space. people don’t ever believe about the footprint of their home as well as exactly how they can reposition a few of the pieces to produce change.

H&H: You’ve been called the “alchemist of color.” Is embellishing with color a science or an art, as well as why?

Tiffany: An art. I never went to institution for design. I comply with my gut, I comply with my style as well as I comply with my taste — as well as I don’t compromise. I believe it truly comes down to just feeling it. I like to err on the side of what haven’t I seen, since that’s what style is. It’s getting people to look as well as observe, as well as truly experience something new.
