Why I use color:"I get inspiration from color. Bold, bright, day or night I like to select a variety of colors that make a huge impact as you move from room to room. I use color to push areas allowing furniture and art to pop."

"Im a graphic designer by trade and I love taking what works in print to interior spaces. Color sets the tone from the living room to the bedroom. It is the easiest way to change your space whether you own or rent. Let yourself go maybe save the whites for your sheets. For the price of a couple of bottles of wine you can create a fresh new space."

2 Good color tips:

"Instead of painting an entire room a particular color, paint one wall a color and the other walls a complementary or contrasting color."

"If youre hesitant to paint an entire room a color paint the focal wall of the room and leave the rest of the walls white. When entering a room your eye will be drawn to wall the with the color on it."
