Playing with color is wonderful! You can have so much fun with it, discovering what looks good to you AND what color has to say! If you understand a little bit about color and what each one has to say, you can be more effective at expressing yourself and your own style.
I find that each color has its own personality, its own voice! You might think that would make it harder to work with, but no. Once you understand color and what it has to say, and how that can be used to your advantage, you can easily create your own style AND enjoy doing so!
Don't be afraid of color; make it work for you. It really IS on your side! You just need to understand what it's saying. You can do it!
