2 Good color tips: 1. Allow your pallette to have shades of your accent color, don't hold yourself to one red, add other shades to mix it up and add eye candy. 2. Find decorative accessories in the tones you have selected, that add shape and pattern in the room. 2 good color resources: 1.Paint is the an easy way to add color, but sometimes as was the case in my apartment, the landlord did not allow for painting so upholstery was the other option. Fabric adds, color, texture and incredible drama! 2. Don't be afraid to add your color with throw pillows and accents, they are easily changed out and add comfort.
