Why I use color:
When I finish building my home, I'd just decided to paint all the wall white. After while I've noticed that it didn't defined any character for my self and the house. so, I'd decided to use two colors in the main room, to give them characters.. In the living room, I use a Java color to tone down the mood to make the room more comfy, cosy, and to make my environment more smooth. A wall that is face in opposite side of the wall, I decided to punch some color by adding "Heartthrob Red" to define my office space. The reason why I use Red, is because, I wanted to color contrast my room by separating two areas. Also, I had all white tables, black frames, White apple computers and etc... Why not take some risk? These color defines my personalities.
2 good color tips:
1. Most of the paint stores in my location offers a pint paints for samples. Test all color on your wall to fine what defines you.
2. Everyone one has different personalities, find a color that brings out your personality. Think about your hobbies, talent, work, beliefs, and attitudes to determine the color you want.
2 good color resources:
1. Sherwin William Paint Store. They have Color contrast samples that matches two tones, three tones, or a colors that goes will with certain colors.
2. Ask the paint experts at the store. Ask your friends, Mom, Dad, Brother and Sister. Ask any family members to help you to decide what color fits you the most.
