Why I use color:
Color can be used to create an atmosphere to change your mood. I use a soft calm color for my bedroom to create an easy mood to relax and rest. Bedroom is a personal retreat place where you can close the door and be yourself. The calm feeling of color will make you relax and slow down from the busy world.
2 good color tips:
1. Define the themes of the room and what do we want to create from the color that we choose. For example: the living room can use some bright color to create a welcoming atmosphere.
2. Get some color samples and try to paint in small area first to get the feeling. Don't be afraid of experiment.
2 good color resources:
1. Local paint stores and Internet. Please be aware that what you see on your monitor screen might be different from what the real color of the paint is -- unless your monitor is professionally calibrated.
2. Design and art magazines could help to get the feeling of what color you like for the room.
