Why I use color: I am a graphic designer and I believe that color is one of the most subconscious influences in our environment that controls feelings and mood. It is amazing to me the things that people start saying in response to the color use in my condo. I love deep, saturated hues. They are so stimulating to me and created such a mood and feeling. It is always amazing to me as well, how differently everyone sees colors - this reinforces my belief in the power that color has on our emotions.
2 good color tips:
Do not focus too much on matching. Mixing up colors that you
wouldn't normally think of putting together often ends up with the best
2. Pick up tons of paint sample sheets for inspiration of mixing colors
2 good color resources:
1. . Vintage clothing stores are always filled with interesting color
mixes that we don't think of.
2. Use everyday objects that create an emotional response to mix
colors. My bedroom color is inspired by my perfume bottle. I could
never find the color I wanted, and had it mixed to match the bottle.
