Why I use color:

I use color to add richness, layers and personality to a room.

2 Good color tips:

1. Check paint and fabric colors under all applicable lighting
conditions (i.e. incandescent, fluorescent, daylight, etc.)

2. Use neutrals as a backdrop (in this situation I choose white
cabinetry and stainless appliances), and use more vivid colors for
accent and to add visual interest.

2 good color resources:

1. Current shelter and fashion magazines for what's "in"
now, and design books for historical inspiration.

2. My local paint store's wall of paint chips is a great
resource -- I can (and do!) spend hours there
