Tips for choosing your paint colors:
- Look for inspiration on pinterest, instagram, or in home magazines
- Once you’ve decided on the direction you want to go, narrow your choices down to 5 or less, ideally.
- Keep in mind that paint colors will look more intense on your walls than they do on paint color strips with multiple shades.
- Look at the color you’re considering in the room that you will be painting, not outside in the bright sun.
- See how the paint color looks in that room during different lighting situations…on a sunny day, on a cloudy day, with and without the lights on, and at night. They look different in each of these situations.
- I strongly recommend testing the color either by painting areas of the room (next to the trim) or by using a peel and stick paint samples. You can get one here:
