Anh-Minh had a really interesting article in the Chronicle this week - all about the effects of fog on color choices for interiors. She spoke to three SF designers...

...on the subject.

Steven Miller (whose room is pictured above) says that "the antidote to fog is color" and recommends going with warmer color temperatures in your rooms to battle the chill that the fog can bring. His favorite hue? Burnt Orange. Suzanne Tucker also adds warmth with yellows and apricots.

On the other hand, Martha Angus goes with it instead of against it - letting the fog inspire color choices such as "blue-grays, blue greens and muted pistachio hues".

What about you? Do you feel that the infamous San Francisco fog affects your color choices? Do you tend to go warm or cool? Let us know in the comments below...
