Squeeze and Squirt

A friend of mine just sent me this fantastic quote from Bruce Shostak in a recent issue of House Beautiful.

“A small entryway is a great opportunity to use a dark color, like this terra-cotta. It feels like a big, warm, earthy hug, and you get a sense of compression that propels you into the living room—what architects call ‘squeeze and squirt.’ And if the living room is a lighter color, like this pale gray, the room will feel even larger and more airy, as if you’ve been hit by a gust of wind.”
