Name: Mod Diva
Location: Chicago
Type: Rented 2 bedroom apartment

Why I use color: I love to use bright colors because they really make me happy. The gloomiest day outside can't touch what's going on inside my apartment. I like to use the colors that make me the happiest.

2 good color tips:

1. Use color to brighten up the darkest of corners in a room or places that need just that punch of color. Some people say that you should go with neutral furniture and colorful accessories. I love to get the boldest of colors in my furniture and go with a blank canvas on my walls this way it makes all the colors of my stuff just pop!

2. I don't usually paint a room in all one color. I would rather paint one accent wall to be the focal point of the room. Too many walls of the same color paint can make a small room look even smaller.

2 good color resources:

1. Get some color not only in your paint but in some funky art or use textiles as art. It's a quick way to not only put up color but to also dress up a blank wall.

2. A room needs accessories as well. Get that color in a throw blanket on your couch, or some interesting collections on display can bring you some color too.
