#8 Susan's Desert Hideaway

Name: Susan
Location: Tucson, Arizona
Type: 2 Bedroom Townhouse

Why I use color: I moved to Tucson, Arizona, 27 years ago and I'm still awed each day as I watch the magnificent crystal blue sky melt into a bright fuchsia-hued sunset. The colors I chose for my home are the ones I find so inspiring around me. I have eight skylights so I knew that the hues on my walls would transform throughout the day, just like the color of the sky over the Catalina Mountains.

2 Good color tips:
1. Colors can always be changed by repainting so if you want color in your life go for it!! You can always go back to white if that is what you truly want.

2. Because of lighting in my house I found that a color wheel did not always give me a true color that would flatter another color. I often took the dominant color of a wall and cut it with white paint to get shades that always complimented each other.

Favorite type and brand of paint:
I used Ralph Lauren for the metallic look I used on my ceilings. I was not particular about where I found the other paints.
