Why I use color (cont'd): We also use color to bring out form and create contrast, using neutrals to emphasize bolds. Our condo has nice molding that we want to notice, so we used a neutral gray as our primary wall color to contrast with the bright white molding. The gray also creates a clean palette which brightens the blue and green accent walls. We add or subtract from the palette to fit the mood of the room: a bright kitchen is fun, a bold living room is cozy, and a neutral bedroom is tranquil. Some of the best colors are the ones people don't think of as "colorful": white, gray, beige, and brown.
2 Good color tips: Use color for contrast - think in schemes Use temporary objects which coordinate with permanent fixtures
