If I wanted to work for free, I'd choose to be a volunteer not a freelancer. Learn the difference already. If you're a freelance professional, don't settle for not getting paid - if you didn't want to get paid, you'd be a volunteer, not a freelancer!
I enjoy color palettes (I guess these are warm earth tones?), but I also like hot pinks and brighter colors. I'm not super into or early color palettes. I have a pink bathroom. I am not afraid of color.
