#42 - Stacey's Simple Aussie Green

Name: Stacey
Location: Belconnen, Australia
Type: 3 bedroom ground floor apartment – owned, but we just managed to sell it last week

Why I use color:

Colour makes me happy and I used the green in our main bedroom to create a calming atmosphere. I have painted other rooms throughout the apartment. I couldn't live with a neutral colour scheme.

2 Good color tips:

1. Go with your gut instinct, I knew the green I wanted and wouldn't settle until I found the perfect hue

2. Don't think about what colours will appeal to others if you are considering selling in the future. Our apartment has a few crazy colours which we thought would deter potential buyers, it however actually became a feature of the apartment.

2 good color resources:

1. Magazines- I always tear out colours and ideas which I have complied into a scrapbook of sorts

2. Real Estate Websites- In Canberra we have www.allhomes.com.au , which I check out on a daily basis. I browse through the virtual house tours and slide shows for inspiration.
