I use color to express myself, to spread joy, to make my world reflect the energy around me. It is always a good day when you wake up to positive surroundings. My world makes me happy. I love the textures in the walls and I love the depth and the richness of the colors. I even painted my ceilings a wisteria so I can look up and see the sky. My surroundings help to influence my day and make me a joyful, positive person. 2 Good color tips: 1. When I am choosing colors to paint...I always head to the palette at the paint store and pick up all the colors that catch my eye. I take them home and spread them all out and go through them once more. I find color groupings that I like. I like to select three colors for my groups. Once I have some sets picked, I set them out and live with them for a few days. I feel colors can pick you. As you walk by, you will know what ones you are drawn to more than the others. Narrow them down until you have the ones you like. 2. Don’t think about where they are going. Just pick out those colors that speak to you. You will be surprised at what colors you chose if you don’t think of where they will go, but just react to them. We have such preconceived ideas of what everything “should” look like. Just go with your gut. Everything is going to be just fine! 2 good color resources: 1 & 2. My color resources are either Home Depot or Lowes and I also have a set of PMS colors...if you really want your choices in colors!
