#8 – Don Ricardo’s Splash and Dash
Name: Don Ricardo
Location: Morrisville, NC

Why I use color:
I use color when decorating to accent and add flare. When decorating in my own home, the colors help express who I am, especially when I’m using my favorite colors. Colors can create moods and even boost energy levels. A splash of color can make any boring room exciting. I have transformed a drab room full of dull earth tones, into a fun and exotic space by only adding brightly colored accessories. Wake any room up with color…Splash it, dash it, and it can come to life!
2 Good color tips:
1. Colors do not always have to “match” they only need to complement one another. Be daring and unique!
2. Certain colors can make a small room seem larger and an over sized space seem more cozy.
2 good color resources:
1. Get color inspiration from fashion. Look at the colors in your favorite sweater, a striped shirt, or a plaid pair of pants. If you liked those colors together in a piece of clothing you might love them in a room.
2. Home decor catalogs and websites.
