Look around your rooms. Did you sit down with a master design plan or are there lots of small, happy color accidents that pop out to you? We often find that our less-than-deliberate color choices really boil down to impulses and happy accidents. Our walls, floors, and furnishings are pretty decisive, but with accessories and artwork, each of our rooms sways in a particular direction that is very much about evolution and a natural pull towards specific colors...

In our kitchen, we "accidentally" acquired (through old stuff, new purchases, and unprompted gifts or hand-me-downs) bright red/orange pieces. Truly unplanned. In our bedroom - small objects in greens, blues, and yellows dot the room.
