We have a Color Guru, or, as I have dubbed her, The Queen of Color, in our midst. And her name is Jane Hall.
She considers herself to be a Lifestyle Designer. I think that’s a good title as well. And we both agree that the power of color is overwhelming at times. Jane has experienced this first hand, when people come through her doors and gasp or sigh or even tear up from the cornucopia of color in her shop.
If you’re feeling down and need a pick me up, forget the spa and get a hit of color/retail therapy all-in-one at Jane Hall.
Jane is a color “expert” in every sense of the word. Starting over 35 years ago making hand painted Batik clothing at the craft shows, she then followed a career as a fine artist. She followed that with winning the prestigious Cadillac Fairview ARC Award (Achievement in new Retail Concepts) for her work with Pittsburg Paints. Her focus has always been what color can do for a product and ultimately the consumer.
With a background in Anthropology, Jane is fascinated by politics and culture. In many ways this gives her an edge by understanding what her clients want and need to create the most fulfilling environment. Instead of asking her clients, what color do you like or what will you be doing in this room, she asks, “ How do you want this room to feel?”
Featured on numerous design shows, magazines, newspaper articles, blogs etc. Jane is an icon in the Canadian design world. And we’re lucky to have her in the Beach neighbourhood.
Jane Hall is art, bedding, cushions, drapery, furniture and lighting. She will help you create amazing rooms and take your old antique pieces and turn them into a “pastiche” of color.
Here are some of my faves:
