She’s has been featured on several TV shows, and was the designer of various HGTV shows such as The High Low Project, Real Estate Intervention and Get It Sold.

MY COLOR TIPS

1. If you have been wanting to use a bold, fun color in a space but have been afraid to make the commitment, use the color in a smaller room and just paint the ceiling. I’ve been wanting to use Sparkling Emerald for a while now and I love how it looks on the ceiling of my powder room!

2. As simple as the color greys are... it can be tricky to choose the right one. For a very light neutral grey, my go-to is Silver Polish. It’s perfect for a space that doesn’t get a lot of natural light.

3. When painting cabinets or doors, always choose one shade darker than your first choice on the paint chip. Colors always appear lighter on large surfaces. But remember, always, and I mean ALWAYS, get a sample pot first to test out the shade on the piece you are painting to make sure it’s works in the space.

Erika Woefel

Erika Woelfel is Vice President of Color and Creative Services at MASCO Coatings. Her insights on color trends and usage have won her international recognition as a keynote speaker and writer.

Her opinions and direction, via the multi-billion US dollar BEHR and KILZ paint business, brings the highest level of technical and professional knowledge about color to a wide range of projects within MASCO Coatings.

MY COLOR TIPS

1. I like color to welcome you home – there’s nothing like a bright red in the hallway to lift your spirits when you walk in the door, or a soft green in the foyer to help you relax after a long day at work. The color that welcomes you home should help set the tone for color in other rooms in the house.

2. Don’t be afraid to use dark color on the walls! Contrary to popular belief, a dark color does not always make a room seem smaller. They can visually extend the boundaries of a room, especially if there is ample light and balance with lighter colors in flooring, furniture, the ceiling and window treatments.

3. The 60-30-10 proportion is a good rule to use for decorating color schemes: 60% of the color goes on walls, 30 % of color can be used on furniture, area rugs and window treatments, and 10% on smaller accent pieces like throw pillows, picture frames or artwork.

Rob Hellander

Rob Hellander is Behr’s resident interior designer, wearing many hats for the company; managing photo shoots, color consultant, set designer and creative manager. A lifelong passion for color and creating beautiful spaces has brought his design work to a national and even international audience. When not remodeling the Behr corporate offices he is pursuing his love of adventure, globetrotting to exotic locations or, local exploration with his two beloved pups in tow.

MY COLOR TIPS

1. Try to use three accent colors max (not counting neutrals), if more are needed use variations of the three accents. Continue with accessories and furniture which will tie the room together.

2. Use the same palette in other rooms in the house. Use the same neutral color to ground the accent colors. You can mix the colors in a different way but it will still flow and be cohesive.

3. When you use your colors, use them in a triangular fashion. This will keep your eye moving throughout the room - keeping interest!

MY COLOR TIPS

1. When designing a room I like to have a piece of art or picture to inspire me. For my bedroom I found a set of four paintings and chose my main paint colors from the colors in those paintings.

2. Don't be afraid to mix colors. Contrasting accent colors will really make your main paint colors POP.

3. For an upscale feel,layer similar shades of the same color together. In my bedroom I used 3 different shades of blue together to create a LUX feel.

Coco

Started in 2008 by Los Angeles based Coco, a self-proclaimed interior design junkie, COCOCOZY began as a decor and interior design blog. In 2011, COCOCOZY launched a high-end home furnishings collection including luxury pillows, throws, bedding, drapery, and candles. The blog and collection have lead Coco into many design partnerships including working with Capel Rugs on her own rug collection, and partnering with Tommy Hilfiger on a capsule pillow collection for summer pop up shop campaign.

MY COLOR TIPS

1. If you want bold color but are afraid of it, start by painting a window or door frame. It will add good contrast to the room and a delicate layer of color.

2. Using a stencil and paint is an inexpensive way to create a stunning and stylish feature wall that looks like your favorite wallpaper.

3. An innovative way to immediately change the look and feel of your room is to paint the ceiling. You can use either high gloss or matte finish, light color or dark to create a modern but classic color block effect.

Brittany Watson Jepsen

Brittany Jepsen is the founder and creative director of The House That Lars Built, a craft and design lifestyle blog that focuses on artful living along with licensed tableware and party products. The House That Lars Built has been featured on The Today Show, CNN, The New York Times. The site is a finalist for this year's House & Home Shorty Award.

MY COLOR TIPS

1. Use lighter colors to brighten up a small, dark space. The light pink acts almost as a neutral and is complimented by the bright lemons and grounded by the earthy green floor.

2. Get creative! Paint is great because it's not permanent--you can always paint over it! We wanted to add whimsy to our room with the lemon branches and it created such a unique and fun look.

3. Don't be afraid of negative space. We set aside 3 areas in our room to keep white so we could utilize the space as areas for inspiration. You can create some relief by keeping a specific area white, whether it's an entire wall or a few frames like we did.
