Why I use color:
I like to use color to define areas. By using colors, I create different areas, each with its own character. I love to make visual divisions in a single living space with the use of color.
2 Good color tips:
1. If you want to paint a wall and you are not sure what color to use, take a photograph of the space, print it out and cut out the wall that you are going to work with. You can easily visualize the effect of the colors you’re considering by placing your print in front of an object, paper, cloth, furniture (anything) with that color.
2. When painting a wall, experiment with design. Walls don’t always have to be painted from corner to corner and with the same color. You just need blue tape and a wild imagination.
2 good color resources:
1. Images that attract my senses from different sources such as magazines, books, prints from cloth, billboards, television, etc.
2. The essence of the Feng shui practice. Feng shui recommends arranging colors throughout a space in very harmonious ways.
