Why I use color: I once read that your space is your third skin and should reflect who you are. I love color, the way it brightens a room and adds life to a space. It adds an element of surprise and this bathroom captivates all who enter. It's fun and unexpected and best of all, we did this renovation ourselves. Mosaic is not only a great way to incorporate all your favorite, colors but it is an excellent way to recycle odds and ends from old projects.
2 good color tips:
1. Use color to lead from one room to another and marry different elements from each room. It's calming and makes sense to the eyes.
2. Use color to frame a room, give it order and punch it up a notch. Look in your closet for inspiration. Most likely the colors in the clothes you wear will make you comfortable in your home environment.
2 good color resources:
1. I love Benjamin Moore paints, great palette and quality. The quickest and most inexpensive way to improve a space is painting.
2. Home decor magazines are a great resource for color. Cut out pictures that appeal to you and over time it will define your taste and preferences.
