2 good color tips:

1. Don't follow trends, do what you like, and you'll always be pleased. It's your home after all, the only person that has to like it is you.

2. Be choosy. I can't tell you how many hot pink or red items I sadly have to pass up because I just have nowhere to put them.

2 good color resources:

1. Fabrics from my favorite fabric store, Sarah's, in Lawrence, KS.

2. Interior design and fashion magazines. Two of my favorites are Elle Decor and Vogue Bambini (kids like color!)
