Toyshelf My "artlines" (which are really curtain hardware from IKEA) let me inject bright bursts of color and art in a changeable display. I love the touches of color in all my little handmade & vintage details around the room too.
Artlines 2 Good color tips: Don't be afraid of bright color. Figure out what works together and try it - you can always repaint. Find a photograph or painting that really speaks to you and use that as an inspiration for your palette. There's a reason why it speaks to you - the color is working. Steal!
Stashcorner Favorite type and brand of paint: So far I really like the American Tradition brand from Lowes. I haven't really tried any fancy paint.
