Why I use color:

Color has given my home so much character and provided another medium of expression for me in my favorite space. It inspires me, centers me, and renews me. Color is easily accessible, endlessly unique, and completely uncomplicated...

Each shade and hue makes a statement and conveys a personality all its own. Color has made the most significant contribution to the transformation of my house into a home. I think the more appropriate question might be "Why not use color?!"

2 Good color tips:

1. Choose a color based on the mood or feeling you want to set for the room.

2. Don't be afraid to try a color you really like. You can always repaint it!

Favorite type and brand of paint:

Valspar (you can find it at Lowe's) It is great paint with excellent color choices and is totally affordable! I have even had professional painters recommend it to me.
