2 Good color tips: 1. I use white as an accent color to pop against the warm colors throughout. Even if that's just the matting in my art, a piece of pottery, a lampshade. 2. I tie the rooms together by repeating colors -- the ceiling lamp in my living room has orange in it, the couch in my family room has a gold tone similar to the living room walls, there is a touch of red in the family room and bedroom, and the bedding also has orange in it. 2 Good color resources: 1. Art. I love adding art to my home for color and interest. I buy all my art at flea markets or thrift stores, and look at items that are not necessarily considered "art" to frame. I have framed 70's tarot cards, stamps from a package that was mailed from India, vintage woodblock postcards, a cool poster for a box car race I found on a streetlamp in Brooklyn. Anything can become art. 2. A lot of people will say this but it's true. Magazines of course. Anytime I see something I like in a magazine, whether it be fashion or design, I clip it and file it away. So the next time I want to change a room I have a resource to go to for inspiration.
