I've Got Color! Contest: Eric's subdued Retreat

Name: Eric Location: San Francisco Why I use color: "Color can be vibrant or more subdued. By using a neutral back drop of color - it allows me to change the feel of the entire room with each of the seasons. Duvet's, pillows, artwork can be changed and then become the focal point. I like to match colors with each season. It is like having a whole new space without needing to redo the entire room. The eye is naturally drawn to these punches of color."

Color Tips: "1. Paint a test area on the wall for your color and live with it a couple of days - to see how it changes with different lighting. That vivid paint sample may not look as good when it is on an entire wall. 2. Generally use 1 - 2 primary colors within a room 3. One red (or other color) accent wall can make an entire room."

Color Resources: 1. Benjamin Moore 2. Color wheel - to see which colors work well off each other.
