Tips of the Trade: Learn How to Use Colors

Some of Chicago's top designers talk about the impact of bold color. The team from Civility Design, Don Raney and Jaymes Richardson, go inside one of their colorful projects. With aqua and pink as the "neutrals", they show how to make accessories pop. Also, Stephanie Wirth of Leo Designs gives a tour of her own home, which is designed entirely of black and white. Although lacking color, she has made her home quite the conversation piece with lots of texture, shapes, and finishes. It proves that lots of color or the lack of it, can both make a dramatic statement.
