2 good color tips: 1. Use color in your home as a way to enrich your life! How do you want to feel in your space?--inspired? relaxed? passionate? Take some time to think about how colors can evoke emotions. Look at color in a way that maybe you never have before...you may enjoy it. 2. Don't be afraid to express yourself once you've discovered your color likes and dislikes...Unless, of course you share your living space with others, in which case you may need to negotiate. Best of luck! 2 good color resources: 1. Flood your mind with images from decorating books and magazines, catalogs, television shows, and store displays. Keep physical and mental images on hand for inspiration. This can help you to decide what colors you do/don't like and allow you to partner them with your own ideas. 2. Now go the opposite direction and take a walk through a park/neighborhood or conservatory where abundant foliage is waiting to be discovered. An autumn leaf or a flowering plant just may be your source of color inspiration.
