Color is instinctive! And, it is definitely emotional...
Most of us have our favorite colors and we know what we like; however, developing an effective color palette takes a bit of finesse. But... instincts + knowledge = one smokin' hot color palette!
Look to your color wheel and learn a little bit about color theory and then go inspire yourself! If you love all things modern and trendy, grab your honey and head off to the art institute! Then, have lunch at a trendy restaurant and see what color combos they're using! Love a vintage feel... get color-inspired browsing antique stores and for cottage inspiration... wander through that quaint boutique that is doing everything right! If yours is a destination, head to the beach or the book store and browse books of the area. For everything garden wedding, spend the day at a conservatory! If nothing else, park yourself in front of the paint counter at Menards.
