What inspired you to use color? I can't even imagine being the type of person who is afraid to use color. I've painted almost every home I've lived in as an adult (around 20 homes over the last 12 years!), whether I had permission from the landlord or not. I'm willing to risk a security deposit to make my home the way I want it...Color Tip: Each time I move into a new place I spend some time there before I move anything in, just sitting on the floor and looking around, watching the light, noting the colors of the wood on the floor, thinking about the mood I hope to create in my new home, and just feeling out the energy of the space. Maybe it sounds kind of woo-woo, but eventually the perfect color always comes to me.
