Name:NanaHuLocation:ChicagoType:2 bedroom apartment, renting since MayWhy I use color:"Since We rent, adding color to an apartment really makes the space yours. Our apartment came with great built in cases, so we painted it with bright, graphic colors to highlight our collection of knickknacks that would go in the cases.We also wanted the house to have a rhythm, so we paced the a few bright walls with white space and used our toys, books, etc to pick up the color within the white space. I think it visually leads the eye through our house and creates different mixed color compositions."
2 Good color tips:"We used really bold colors for 2 high traffic portions of our house, but didn't paint every single wall in the room...I would suggest when adding color to a space, especially a bright color, is not to cover all 4 walls with the same color."
2 Good color tips:"I strongly believe in contrast. I love keeping within the same tone family and contrasting it with colors from other families in small objects or furniture. It allows the secondary color family room to really pop and your primary colors to breathe."
Favorite type and brand of paint:"We used Behr."
