What is a Pop of Color?
I’m sure you’ve heard people say, “I want a color that pops!” and I’m sure you’ve said it a thousand times yourself. I know I have. So what exactly happens when color “pops”? Let’s talk.

Hope you enjoyed a little information on color that pops. If you need help with your popping colors, I’d be happy to help. Donna Frasca, Color Specialist in Charlotte.
Donna and I initially connected via Twitter where even her little avatar seemed to just jump from the stream. As @Color4Charolette you can find her frequently engaged is some of the social medium’s more prominent Chats. She regularly dishes (yep, pun) advice on design, decorating as well as color. Her Color Recipes blog concept – brilliant. Give a follow, say hi. I know I hope to have her back over here at BMoxie again. To you — great day and thanks for reading. ~jb
