What inspired you to use color? In my last apartment we were not allowed to paint the walls. The white apartment felt clinical and motivated me to take a bold and whimsical approach to decorating...

...I'm filling my new place with objects and colours that arouse joy and warmth (even though my choices can be somewhat overwhelming). I was also inspired by Jonathan Adler's maximalist style, which I am trying to emulate little by little as the decorating process continues.

Color Tip: My one colour tip is to use clear colours. Muted colours are safe and can appear dull, bright ones instantly lift a place up.
