Color Tips: "tip 1)I like to look at all the traditional resoures for inspiration- magazines, nature, advertising, fashion.But I think the best thing to do when choosing colors you can live with is to look at items that you own and love, the clothes you wear, your shoes, your jewelry. take clues from those things and blow them up to room size scale. tip 2) if you are a color novice, make sure you pay attention to shades and values of particular colors. Don't just go to the store looking for "orange". The actual shade you want may be more ochre, or coral, or yellow. always take second, third and fourth looks when using color combos- just make sure they feel right together.. a shade off and you could suffer from the "something doesn't feel right" feeling that haunts many people."
