Why I use color:
Because I love the way color can make you feel. I'm a freelance illustrator/designer so color has always been a very important aspect in my life. I've lived in colorful and vibrant México for many years and I've been greatly influenced by it. I use color because it inspires me, it makes me happy. It can create the atmosphere of a room...I use color because I love life...and live is so colorful!

2 Good color tips:

1. I love bringing color to a room without overwhelming it by painting just one wall in color. That way when I'm tired of it and want change It's easier than to have to paint the entire room again.

2. The other thing I like do to bring color to a room without it being "too much" is to apply color in the bottom 3 feet of the wall and leave the rest white.

2 good color resources:

1. "Casa Mexicana" by Tim Street Porter
2. "Mexicolor: The Spirit of Mexican Design" by by Tony Cohan
