Amber Interiors- Rainbow Brights...add color!

Hi a' la moders!! It's Amber from Amber Interiors. Since Shelli is deservedly off sunning herself and relaxing all her cares away, she has bravely asked me to make an appearance on her lovely bloggy. I am thrilled she invited me and will do my best to entertain you lovely a' la moder's with some guest post goodness and pretty pictures. I know I have some big boots to fill here but I am gonna give it a go and pray I don't disappoint. 

So, what shall we talk about?
Since summer is upon us how about we discuss color. As a designer I tend to gravitate towards bright punches of color to add depth and something interesting to each space. Clients always tell me they want there homes to have color...but when I bring out the pinks and oranges most of them flip out and end up with "safety" neutrals. Don't get me wrong, I think neutrals have their place in this world, but I think if you want color....then ADD color! 

You don't have to paint your walls turquoise blue to make a color statement. You can have white walls or even, dare I say, greige walls and still add color tastefully.

My biggest tip of advice for those scared to add some rainbow hues to there spaces......is to just take BABY STEPS.
Start with pillows or accessories, then if you feel confident try a piece of furniture or a table lamp.

I always say, when in doubt just refer to the color wheel...yes that old chestnut.
Remember that color is your friend and a little bit won't hurt ya. 

Here are some real awesome examples of ways to infuse some chroma into your life as well as some images which may inspire you!!
