Gretchen Schauffler Devine Color Commercial

Gretchen Schauffler
"Color With Benefits"


Devine Color Commercial Design is a design-build firm based in Portland, Oregon, specializing in the aged care industry. Our design method is deeply rooted in artist Gretchen Schauffler’s Color With Benefits protocol — a philosophical approach to design that engages the scientific, psychological and spiritual benefits of color.

Color engages our senses on a visceral level. It has instinctual qualities. When you use color strategically, you can create meaningful environments that feel real, not staged. Whether your space simply needs a new coat of paint, or a complete top-to-bottom overhaul, we will guide you through every stage of the process, from initial design concepts to installation and clean up, helping you to create an impactful, emotionally beneficial environment on any budget.

From well designed to well-being

It's time to change the way we think about the aged care industry, to celebrate the aging process, and to stop putting our loved ones into homes that remind them of their grandparents. It's time for a total change in environment.

Color is emotional and transcendent. It has the ability to lift a mood, ease the mind, and ignite our inspiration. Let's use color to create memorable environments that promote happiness and well-being.

It's time to make endings as colorful as beginnings.
