in the news… radio interview with dream corner
Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting and being interviewed by Viv Oyolu, the creator and radio presenter of Dream Corner. Dream Corner is focused on women, and Viv’s goal is to spark or rekindle a dream or passion that any woman has had, and inspire them to do something about it.
Viv brings together a wealth of inspiring women who share their stories and experiences of realising their dreams. She interviews women from different walks of life, to talk about their journey to where they are now – self employed or in paid employment; with the aim that something will encourage a woman listening to think seriously about taking the first steps to realise their dream.
Viv’s warm personality and relaxed conversational style put me quickly at ease which was great given it was my very first radio interview.
During the interview, Viv asked me how I got started, what made me take the big step from corporate life to setting up my own colour & design consultancy with my top tips for anyone wanting to follow their dream.
We discussed all things colour, how I take the personality of an individual or a business, and draw out the colours that represent their true self. I focus on finding the authentic personality and bring it to life through employing colour psychology and holistic interior design.
Colour elicits emotions, it portrays how we are feeling and how we want others to interact with us. Usually subconsciously. We discuss how the big brands use colour psychology to get noticed and increase sales. We also talk about the process taken by trend forecasters so the manufacturing of the next season’s trend colours hit the stores at the same time.
I have a couple of exciting projects being made public over the next 6 months and sparking Viv’s curiosity she’s asked me back, which I’m already looking forward to!
“Gosh! I can’t believe how much I learnt from Karen! It is not only what you wear, but the colours that can affect not only our business but personal relationships. I see things so differently now, and willing to make changes to get the desired response I want.” – Viv Oyolu
