“How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.” wrote the insightful author, Annie Dillard, and I think that goes well with how we use colour. How we choose colour represents how we surround ourselves with artwork and objects and designs. Colour Theory helps us combine the right colours, but it is our love of certain colours that directs those choices. Design advice – follow your instincts. If you want a purple kitchen you can make it work.
