Why I use color:"If we had to pick two reasons why we use color they would be A. personality and B. a decade and a half of apartment living. We both have an observant eye and often are drawn to quirky and unusual, and often times colorful, things. For years and years both of us lived in a number of apartments with white walls and rules. When we bought our condo we finally had a venue to showcase our personalities and we really let loose and what was birthed is what you see in these pictures. "

2 Good color tips:

"Don't be afraid! Putting color on your walls is a great way to express yourself and not to mention, if you don't like it once it's on the wall you can always paint over it! Remember that you are going to spend more time in your house than anyone else, so don't worry about what other people might think; all that matters is how you feel about it. "

"Go with your gut! It can be overwhelming standing at the paint store looking at those thousands upon thousand of paint chips. If you are drawn to one over the other, there's probably a good reason. Also, it's great to get paint samples (you can get these at Sherwin Williams for about $5) and try them out. "

Favorite type and brand of paint:"Sherwin Williams Super Paint"
