Name: Lisa & Tony Location: Sonoma County Type: Very modest 1930's bungalow-wannabe house; owned Why I use color: As a couple of artists, colors are our tools, our materials. (Those are two of Lisa's paintings in the dining room photo.) We like to think about using color in our environment -- from the walls of the house to the garden -- in the same way we might use color in a painting.

2 good color tips: 1. Don't underestimate the ability of fabrics to create relatively inexpensive color 'shifts.' 2. Paint on furniture! As many of our things are flea market variety, a coat of colorful paint can really spruce 'em up. . . . . .and if you possibly can, buy original artwork that you love! 2 good color resources: 1. Nature. She rarely makes a bad color combination. 2. Magazines. I'm always tearing out pages of color & texture for possible use in collages.
