Why I use color:

My husband and I just recently purchased our new home this summer. For the first time in our lives we were able to paint the walls any colors we wanted. We also realized during the process of painting that it was a cleansing experience, as well as adding our own character. When you choose your personal colors, you are washing away the previous owner's memories and starting fresh with your own. . .

. . .I now don't think about the amazing antique furniture that has been replaced with our "hand me down" pieces. I chose Mango Madness and Ruby Ring for our kitchen because we live in the Northwest. Being rainy and grey for most of the time you need to have fun and bright colors. I have always wanted an orange and red kitchen.
