Color Tip: Don't be afraid of color. When I started painting dark, saturated colors on the walls, I was a little nervous at first. But once I put my things back into the space, I found everything looked better against the walls. When I look at my "before" pictures, I am amazed at how much better the rooms look now. And, of course, if a color doesn't eventually grow on you, you can always paint over it.
