“Color is your friend,” proclaims the first chapter of Bright Bazaar: Embracing Color for Make-You-Smile Style by Will Taylor.
Maybe, but in a world where many folks play it safe with white or neutrals color schemes, color can be scary. We know. We recently decided our plain white walls in our Children’s Department needed an upgrade. Knowing how much kids love color, we chose yellow, orange, and red for the walls. Gulp.

From boring to brilliant
From beige to bright.
