Aurélien Guillory Color Theory

From his College days in Louisiana, and his double majors in Clinical Psychology and Beaux Arts, Aurélien Guillory has studied the books of Color Theory research from Goethe, Faber Birren, Johannes Itten, Dr. Edwin Babbit and Dr. John Ott.

Now, Mr. Guillory has distilled this knowledge and uses it to diagnose the psychological needs of his clients, including the Luscher color test. It is the synthesis of both objective and subjective color theories that ultimately results in the "psychologically supportive" environment.


His seminars on "The Four Steps to your Perfect Home" illustrate very well his ability to diagnose efficientely the client's personnal tastes.

The Four Steps To Your Perfect Home

-Determining your Personal Taste

Don't be a fashion victim in your own home! Too often we see people dressed in a fashion that is inappropriate to their physique and image. Proper diagnosis of your own tastes when having your home decor ideas realized reduces error, cost and frustration. Once you understand your own subconscious biases towards color, light pattern and texture, Aurélien will demonstrates with charts and slides the variation of these four factors. The students will then assess themselves during the conference. Then Aurélien will illustrate typical diagnoses. For example, why a person whose taste runs towards contemporary and Santa Fe Styles would not shop for furnishings at the same locale as someone who prefers Victorian.

-Professional point of view

Correctly analyzed client responses to color, light, pattern, and texture, give the Designer/Sales Person diagnostic clues toward creating the ideal home or work environment. Aurélien's university majors in clinical psychology and fine arts have given him a unique approach to interior design: "The Psychologically Supportive Environment". Combining tests of client/subject preferences in the areas of color, light, pattern and texture, Mr. Guillory has produced a "formula" called "The Four Steps To Your Perfect Home"© to assist in determining a client's true tastes and preferences in decor colors, styles and art. This diagnostic formula can serve decorators or the consumer public in assessing the almost unconscious preferences we all harbor. It shows the professional how to rapidly diagnose a client's true tastes, preferences and biases, often camouflaged by his/her anxieties or sense of propriety. He then illustrates the most typical forms of decor suited to a diagnosed client-type. Use of this formula enhances the professional's perceptions and sensitivity to client needs and desires. Clients then feel more involved in the process, increasing rapport and confidence. This gives the most cost-effective approach.
