Name: little green
Location: Santa Rosa
Type: We live in an old beat-up, 890 sq. ft. house that we own. Myself, my husband and two daughters. We do utilize quite a bit of outdoor living areas most of the year.

Why I use color:

Being artists, we can't avoid stuff, nor can we be the minimalists we would like to be. We are a family with stuff and we actually use our kitchen for cooking!...

...We can't avoid color, so we try to use it in clear and well defined ways. Otherwise it might overwhelm us. We're overwhelmed already, so color must know its place!

2 Good color tips:

I'm probably not the best to offer tips. Our house is truly too hodgepodge for most people's tastes.

Favorite type and brand of paint:

We use Benjamin Moore, exclusively. That's what the corner store sells, that's what we buy. We avoid the big box stores at all costs.
