#3 - Yuki's Vibrant Color and Life

Name: Yuki C.
Location: Miami, FL
Type: Owned, One Bedroom

Why I use color:

This is my 1 bedroom apt. My husband and i purchased it this year and moved in april. It is our first official home as a homeowner couple so i wanted to make it as special as i could. Merging our tastes and preferences, I have to be thankful my husband has good taste ;) and agrees on a lot of my ideas...not always but we manage...

We are both graphic designers so color is definitely a priority in our lives, a huge one in mine. My mom tells me that when i was little little i used to tell my dad that his tie didn't match with his outfit, or his shirt wasn't the right color for his suit...haha

So obviously since i was little color played an important part in my life, and i honestly love it! Discovering new color combinations excites me!!!!

Our wedding color were blue and brown so i wanted that to play a part in our bedroom and it continued to our bathroom. Bold green in the living room, is something i always wanted to do. In conclusion i wanted our apartment to be full of vibrant color and life.

2 Good color tips:

- Using opposite colors (complimentary colors) from the color wheel usually works great!

- Brown is always a good neutral color to use with vibrant ones.
