Name: Susan Location: Washington, DC Type: 1 bedroom, own Why I use color: I love the color problem; it is of the x, y, and z dimension. What colors are best for a given room contour, natural light, furniture and art? It is endlessly challenging, and I think that I work in some middle ground that seeks to integrate the different elements harmoniously... I tend to like primary colors but in a subdued hue. I prefer wooden furniture and this apartment came with lots of cherry wood shelving. I chose some colors to bring it in sharp relief and others to provide a subtle difference. The terra cotta walls in the dining room remind me of the lower floor of a building Frank Lloyd Wright designed, in the town I grew up, where his color idea came from red clay soils. 2 Good color tips: 1. Avoid trendy color combinations, they detract from your long-term personality 2. Don’t buy home furnishings from the internet that involve color unless you can see a swatch first. Colors look so different in real life or in the particular light of your own room. 2 good color resources: 1. Fauvist paintings 2. Sales/advisors at Benjamin Moore paint stores
