Decorating Tips - How to Use Color

Do you live in a space with white walls?  Are you bored?  Color is the easiest way to bring life to a room.  And it's also one of the cheapest!  Thank about it - how much is a can of paint these days? $20, $30, $40.  It depends on the brand you buy. 

So how do you choose color?  Coco Chanel once said "The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you." But does that apply to our homes? Of course it does!

Start by looking at the colors that you wear? Do you like color or is a neutral palette more to your liking?  Well start there.  If you find yourself drawn to color ask yourself, are they bright colors or soft colors?  Which hues make you feel happy, relaxed, and at peace?

I've put together a collection of rooms I found on Pinterest and bhg.com.  Enjoy!
