Color Tip: Don't decorate according to others' expectations. Your home is a launching pad, a place to grow. Before you pick colors, consider who you are and what you need. Don't bring it into your home if it doesn't have a positive affect on you. Consider what colors you will be able to see from each room. My main room is cool, so I made sure the only colors I could see from that room were also cool, even though those rooms are warm. It ended up drawing the eye out, and made the room visually continue past its actual space. Find the oddities in your home that make it unique, and highlight it with color. An odd shape becomes a beauty mark, not an eyesore. Reduce - Reuse - RETHINK Also, that's Schrödinger on my bed!
