Name: C Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico Type: 1 bedroom apartment in complex built in 1960s/70s, owned. Why I use color: To create a mood. I wanted to create a sense of warmth, coziness in an otherwise charmless white box (combination sitting area/dining area before paint). The most dramatic way I could transform this little box was to paint its walls a deep medium red (color is Behr mineral red). Instant warmth. 2 Good color tips: 1. Red (favorite color) can look good with a variety of woods, light to dark, and metal finishes-- almost neutral. 2. Color & texture - A combination of different textures, materials in a similar range of colors also makes things more interesting. 2 Good color resources: 1. (Intuitive): Your closet - what is worn most often and what color is it? 2. (Analytical): _The Interaction of Color_ by Joseph Albers. The most carefully thought-out approach to the optical effects of different color combinations.
