2 Good color tips: 1. Know what mood you’re trying to evoke in a room and research the colors that will help with that. 2. Don’t be afraid! Don’t be afraid to do something out of the ordinary or something against the ‘rules’. I think the reason our walls were always white is that my mother was afraid she’d do something ‘wrong’ by painting something the wrong color… if you don’t like it you can always change it. 2 Good color resources: 1. Nature. Look at things you love and derive a palette from that. 2. Magazines. Find photographs of other interiors you love that evoke the feelings you want in your home and go with it.
