2 Good color tips: 1. Don’t be afraid of looking ridiculous! I’m sure plenty of people think I do with that gigantic, pink Cupid-girl above the mantelpiece and dresses hung as art. But I really love them, so what’s to hide? 2. Try using many variations of one hue, in a tone on tone fashion; it will add visual richness to your design. For example, a wall of apple green next to nothing but more apple green furniture and accents will make it seem as if a robot designed your room (not that robots are a bad thing!) But apple green with some olive, pistachio and teal added to the palette will tickle your eyeballs. 2 good color resources: 1. Favorite Artists and Designers (mine being Mary Blair and Enid Collins) 2. Paint Swatches…and lots of them! That way you can play with many different color combinations and their nuances.
