I'm submitting my kitchen: Apple green walls, brown panelling (the back of my IKEA Markor bookcases) and IKEA LUVA lamp in Beech. Stainless steel fixtures throughout. I stained the old cabinets from a terrifying yellow to match the panelling I've put up. 2 Good color tips: 1. Any colour can convey any mood - especially in bedrooms, I've always had the wildest colours. It's a trick of finding the right undertone to make the colour appropriate. A cool red is more calming that one with an orange undertone. Don't go by the traditional approaches to colour, even a blue can be alive and energetic. 2. Try to make your home come together as a whole. In my apartment, I had 3 colours - Purple, Orange and Green, I brought these together in the other rooms through the linens, decorative objects and artwork to help tie everything together. 2 good color resources: 1. Everything around you, from pop cans to highlighters to stamps. I did a survey of my desk at work, and that is what I saw. 2. Go paint chip crazy. They're free, take as many as you want, play with them, put them together, cut them up and make art, it'll help you figure out what you like.
