Name: Two grad students
Location: Ithaca, NY
Type: 1-bedroom, rented
Why I use color:
Grad school can be depressing at times, especially in a place with
long, snowy winters. We try to maintain a surrounding that keeps us
maximally happy, and color is something we've always loved...
After hours in the lab, it's nice to come home to a warm, cheery space. Also, paint is doable on grad student stipends (with an understanding landlord).
2 Good color tips:
1. Use colors that give you a rush of happy chemicals
2. Don't obsess too much
