Must-Know Rules for Using Color

Learn about using color in your home with tips from Better Homes and Gardens contributing design editor, Elaine Griffin.

-Nothing fanatically transforms us today as much as color does. Here are the 3 rules of color that always work. Number 1, if the color combination exists in nature, you know, in a flour, a fruit, or landscape, it will work in your home. Number 2, southern facing rooms look fantastic I rich dark color. You could paint a southern exposed room black and it will be the chichis thing in the world if you have a super bright room. Rule number 3, every room needs pop of color, either a strawberry or citrus just to make it pop, just a throw pillow, maybe an object, so it really syncs. That what gives the eyes something to rest on and say, huh, happy.
