Why I use color: I have two different reasons for using colors. My practical purpose is to create a certain mood in a room. For example: I like using calm, soothing colors for rooms in which I intend to relax, like my bedroom; and warm lively colors for rooms in which I want to socialize and entertain, like my living room. Then my second and most obvious reason for using color is self expression. I feel like your home speaks a lot about who you are to your guests, and so I use unique and bold colors that reflect my personality.
