Why I use color:

We use color because nature is not just black, white, and grey. We are both very visual and enjoy the challenge of putting different colors together. We spend a lot of time in our house, and color
gives us energy.

2 good color tips:

1. House wares and home furnishing catalogs and websites can be a good source of inspiration.

2. Artwork is as important as furniture in bringing color balance to a room.

2 good color resources:

1. C2 paints are incredible and the large swatches allow you to try the color in different parts of the room in different lighting.

2. Estate sales! Our bedspread is a 60's Vera that we purchased for $3.00! The photo over the bed is from an estate, and the pillow on the bed is made of vintage bowling patches, another estate sale find.
