Some inspiration on how to design a nice home!

As an interior designer, I believe the analysis of color to be somewhat arbitrary. Colors are affected by the amount of light, openness, and furnishings, so attributing emotions to certain colors may be accurate in studies, in real homes I’ve seen strong colors that are fabulous, and not limited to “expected” uses. The other challenge I have with the above is the designation of gender to certain colors. While that may be what studies show, I have found that much of what we are comfortable with is due to how we were taught as we grew up. We are comfortable with what is familiar to us. It’s ok to break “the rules” .
