Why I use color:
"I have come to terms with my color phobia, thanks to my kindergartner. Paint is easily changed and has the greatest impact for the cost (very important!) Plain, practical furniture fits in such a tiny room but will grow with my son and the many inevitable paint jobs. The mood of the room is then set by the wall color and pattern. He is energized in his space and lets his imagination run wild. The color has since spilled out into every other room in the house, the greater the saturation the better!"
"1. Always test the paint on the walls first rent a quart! The light changes the colors dramatically from day to night, even room to room!
2. When using saturated colors in a small space, balancing lights and darks can visually increase size.
3. If you can get your hands on a pantone color book, it makes shopping for other colors easier because you always have your color to shop against."
"1. tacky as it is- www.behr.com it has many tools for playing with colors, but their paint stinks!
2. my newest online obsession is Colorlovers.com a neat tool for color enthusiasts"
