I've Got Color! Contest: Allison's Color Cubes On a Budget

Location: New York, NY

Why I use color:

"When I moved into my first New York apartment I needed to decorate on
an extremely low budget. I have a very large long white room. I did not want to spend all my money on art for the walls. I decided to just buy a few cans of paint and see what I could do."

Color Tips:

"• Don't be afraid to mix patterns. A mix of subtle and bold
patterns can add a nice contrast to a room.

• Have fun with paint. You can always paint over it.

• If you see a pattern you like alter it and make it your own. The
idea for my wall originally came from a pillow that I saw at a sample
sale. I really liked the idea of patterned rectangles. I chose colors I liked and created something similar but with my own style."

Color Resources:

"• Design Blogs: There are tons of them out there. Coolhunting.com and JoshSpear.com are just two. I don't just look at interior design.

I can get inspired from any type of good design

www.colourlovers.com : this site has some great color schemes"
