#1- Emily’s Warm and Fuzzy Living Room
Location: Hollywood, CA
Type: 2 bedroom, rental
Why I use color:
I use color because color makes me happy. There is nothing like a bright orange anything to make me feel all warm and fuzzy. When it comes to color in the home, the brighter, more fun and unexpected the better. I like to offset the boring walls of my rental apartment by mixing up bright mix-matched patterns with blocks of solids.
2 Good color tips:
1. Think contrast, think bold and be fearless
2. Work your way there; keep walls white and put color explorations into the accessories first, then when you are feeling more confident to make a bolder color statement, you will have freedom to experiment with a pallette that might feel risky at first that way. Also, you can change things up when you are ready to try something new.
