Why I use color:

"Quite simply, color makes me happy. i enjoy coming home each day and relaxing in my cozy green studio. the bright green walls provide a backdrop that highlights some of my favorite objects in my "bedroom" - the black & white photographs and graphic printed bedding."

Color Tips:

"1. use colors that you love. they'll make you feel instantly at home!

2. everything in moderation. if you're going to use a bright, bold color in your room, try to balance it with a neutral that gives your eyes someplace to rest.

3. embrace the little splashes of color that accessories can offer. colored accessories add visual interest. bonus points when they remind you of something that makes you smile (brightly framed pictures of friends, souvenirs from a great trip, etc)!"

Color Resources:

"1. is saying "apartment therapy" kissing up too much? seeing what other people on the site have done with their rooms and their colors is always interesting and sometimes inspiring!

2. postcards - whether they're from travels (your own or others') or the free postcard stand at a coffee shop, they're often brightly colored and filled with great design!"
