#6 - Amber in Norfolk's Tiffany Smile

Name: Amber in Norfolk
Location: Norfolk, Va
Type: It's a 1000 sq. foot house, which I own

Why I use color:

When I set up my craft room, I wanted a space that was full of energy and would inspire me to create. I love this aqua/Tiffany blue-ish color. Every time I walk in the room it makes me smile...

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.

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!

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.
