What inspired you to use color? Growing up in Southern California was to grow up surrounded by exuberant color. the proximity to Mexico & my South American background are some of the factors that influence my use of color, which has always played a part in my homes. As an architect and designer I see the use of color as an integral aspect of any project. And I suppose, color makes me happy, to see a room change with the play of light, to see it glow, is almost a childlike joy. Here the colors were dictated by the colored glass windows & a simple striped bag. Once one wall was done, it infected the rest of the house, even to the dining table outside.

Color Tip: Don't be meek with color. Start with one bold wall, because the truth is you can always paint over it, but if you don't try you'll never know what you really love.

Colors Used: None given
