Type: 1 bedroom loft, pictures are of the "great room"...a combined kitchen and living room.
Why I use color: A colorful environment stirs my creativity. I love the color black, and use it throughout my place. It helps to make artwork stand out, especially brighter pieces. I live in a loft, and the color helps define spaces.
2 good color tips:
1. Experiment and test different colors in your spaces. I find using a rainbow of colors or the extreme of being too matchy-matchy doesn't work for me.
2. I try to void overuse of white in my place, and I refuse to use beige. It is way overused by people trying to play it safe.
2 good color resources:
1. Many cities have fashion weeks. These are great places to see color used in new and exciting ways.
2. Graphic design can provide a wealth of ideas of ways to use color creatively.
