Why I use color: We use color on our walls and black and white in our furniture and bedding to create impact and give the space instant personality on a budget. Buying classics, like Panton chairs in white and then changing the walls when bored always creates a new mood without us going broke.
2 Good color tips:
1.Kick up your comfort zone just a little bit. Take the color you love and change it a notch, paint is easy to change.
2. White never goes out of style. When in doubt, buy white.
2 Good color resources:
1. We live near the ocean so light, natural colors are just an extension of the outdoors here.
2. I constantly tear pictures out of magazines when I'm drawn to something- then I go with my gut. If you like it, it really doesn't matter what someone else thinks!
