#6 - Derek's Earthy Blank Canvas

Oct 9, 2007

Name: Derek
Location: Portland
Type: 2 bedroom apartment that I own

Why I use color:

I use color or a lack of color as a way to portray my personality. I actually think it is a shortcut representation of me and who I am. When I have white, it acts like a blank canvas, so I am constantly feeling open to new possibilities. When I use earthy colors, it brings me back to nature which helps me feel grounded.

2 Good color tips:

1-Don't be afraid of colors. You can always change them if you stop liking them.
2-Collect inspiring images and try to discover what it is you like about them. A lot of times it will be the color combinations from a well taken photograph. You can make color palettes from these that you will be sure to love.

Favorite type and brand of paint:

Pantone for its color palette. Benjamin Moore Aura for the quality of the paint. And Dunn Edwards for its hip packaging
