Those fabulous folks over at Apartment Therapy have just launched their annual Room for Color contest in conjunction with BEHR paint. Whether you are house-proud enough to want to enter or just want to find some fresh ideas, Room for Color is well worth a look.
Color has always been a big part of my life. Since I was younger my mother handed me a paint brush and left caution to the wind. I am constantly inspired by fashion, music, art, literature and anything that creates a story either mentally or visually. People should think of a song that makes them feel the way they’d like to feel in a space and then mentally create a color for that song/mood. We all hear in color and if we tune in to realize what that sound is invoking within us we can create a space that not only makes us feel amazing it looks sensational too.
