Name: Amber Location: Auburn Type: Owned three bedroom home Why I use color: Surrounding myself with color makes me happy. It's as simple as that. I love combining colors and patterns and beloved objects to make a space come alive. In the case of my living room, bright warm tones energize an area I spend a lot of time in, but in my bedroom I used a light turquoise and huge plants for an airy, relaxed, island vibe. I love that every room has a different mood, to suit all of mine!

2 good color tips: 1. Pick colors you love, not ones that "go" wth what you have. Color choice should be a purely emotional decision. Everything else will fall into place. 2. When painting walls, always go one shade lighter than you think (learned that the hard way!) 2 good color resources: 1. Paint swatches. Sometimes even the names inspire. 2. Fashion magazines. Every season, they manage to create bold new color combinations.
