Why I use color: I'm an artist so I always think in terms of color and composition. In rooms, I use color as a mood lifter, and always have colorful objects around that I collect on my travels. I love architecture and design magazines--they're like porn for me.

2 Good color tips: 1) Paint stores can mix colors from anything- I once brought a lime green pair of sneakers to my paint store, and they zapped it with a color reader tool, and mixed the color- I painted a small hallway with it.

2) Small, normally unconsidered areas are good candidates for fun colors and treatments that you wouldn't use for a whole room. Stripes on a laundry room wall make it more fun. Vintage wallpapers make good tackboards, or can be used in back of utility shelves or bookcases.
