This episode discusses the fear of color and talks about three examples.
Many people are “afraid of color.” In most cases, the problem is not color, but contrast. If you run into a color problem in your house, try these tips:
1. Add more color to the room with art, accessories, rugs, curtains, etc. More color in the space will decrease the overall contrast of a room.
2. Pull color into the center of the room (rugs and accessories) to deemphasize dark or bright walls closing in the space.
3. Make sure to have enough light in the space at night to avoid colors appearing too dark.
