#40 - Brian and Sarah's Color in Every Room

Name: Brian and Sarah
Location: St. Petersburg, FL
Type: We own a 2 bedroom condo

Why I use color:

We like to have a fun and comfortable home. The best way to do that is with color. Wall color is always one of the last things I choose when designing a room even though it is the most important.

2 Good color tips:

1. Find something you love where it is a pillow, artwork, or a rug. Design the rest of the room around it.

2. When picking a wall paint get lots of samples in a variety of different shades. Take your time do not decide the same day. Come back later in a couple days and see if you still like the same color. Remember you can always repaint!
