I always find choosing colours for a new project the hardest part. I mock up most of my designs on photoshop and move things around NON STOP. When I'm finally happy (as happy as I ever get!!), its then colour choice time.
I try and work out colours which go with the gift recipients personalities but its HARD - what if that person has a new throw for the sofa and I make them a cushion and it CLASHES?! the trauma!!!!
I guess the question I should be asking is what colours suit the project?
Right now I'm thinking about colours for a wedding gift. A wedding gift for a couple who have recently moved so I haven't seen their new houses' colour scheme.... it could all go so wrong!!
