Make Mine in Technicolor!

Life does not have to be lived in black, gray, and white. Color adds zest and variety to a wardrobe, home decor, menu, and so on.

Why choose coffin gray if sizzling red or cool lilac are options?

At a meeting the other day, in an office, I spotted a filing cabinet that broke through the traditional mold. Instead of drab gray, it was brilliant papaya colored---a mixture of deep orange and red. It lit up a whole section of the room. Awesome!

The most recent room in our house to get a color revamp is the kitchen. The dark green floral Waverly wallpaper that covered the walls would have been great in a bedroom. It made the kitchen dark and busy. So, off came the paper in big strips and stuck-on slivers. On went base coat and a buttery yellow paint called "Morning Sun."

The transformation has been nothing short of miraculous.

Color changes and transforms. It perks up the drab and adds a little "pizazz" to the mundane. So bring on the M&Ms. Whoops. Sugar's not good. For color, better stick to Crayolas!
