BONNIE KRIMS is a professional colorist specializing in architectural color design. Bonnie Krims Color Studio has been serving clients for the past thirty years. Her approach has been to recognize human reactions to color, and to provide her clients with colors that create happiness and a positive emotional outcome. Color is much more than decoration and aesthetics.
Bonnie is now renewing her lifelong passion for crafts and creative connections, constructing mosaic wands and “bagua” boxes, and re-entering the world of classical music as a flutist. Each of her colorful creations represents the human intention to inspire well being in the areas of love, children, creativity, friendship, family, career and so on.
She started her career as a flutist and music teacher, then moved into painting decorative furniture and interiors, which led to a career as a professional color consultant and color book author. The Perfect Palette was the first book on the market to help people choose paint colors for their homes. It was all about evoking emotions in order to personalize the paint color selection process.
Opportunities arose for television, radio, and writing for magazines. Her company expanded nationally with color consulting work being generated from all over the country. Her books have been published in multiple languages and sold internationally.
She has appeared on popular Home and Garden television shows, including the PBS series THIS OLD HOUSE®. Her work has been featured in publications including Alternative Medicine, Better Homes and Gardens, Renovation Style, Women’s Day, Good Housekeeping, This Old House, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, The Washing Post and The Christian Science Monitor.
