Why I use color:
I work from home quite often and I really needed a happy, comfortable space. Color also keeps things looking pulled together, even when my work space becomes chaotic. Fun colors that I love also keeps me energized while I am working.
2 good color tips:
1. If you like one color, it doesn't mean you have to paint the whole room in that color. You may find splashes of that color, in repetitions, to work even better. That way you also won't get tired of that color.
2. Keep a box or notebook of photos of your favorite postcards, fabrics, and pictures from magazines. When you want to redecorate your room, you can pull out those pictures to see what colors have drawn you in before and use them as inspiration.
2 good color resources:
My two most favorite things to get a color scheme inspiration from are:
1. Swatches of my favorite fabrics.
2. Stationery – there are so many cute designs out there!
