Choosing the paint colors for our house was no easy task. With a paint deck that had about 4.4 million colors in it, I was completely overwhelmed and got sucked into a trap of overthinking the whole thing. My advice: Keep it in perspective. It’s just paint. Pick a few colors that you love, colors that flow in your home, and run with it! You can always re-paint if you absolutely hate the colors.
Another piece of advice: get a few sample colors from your local hardware store (about $2-$3 each) and paint them on the wall before you decide on THE color. It’s important to see the color on the wall in your space. Everyone’s lighting is a little different and this can make a huge difference in the appearance of the color. Make sure to sneak a peek at your sample colors at all different times of the day too. The color may look different at different times of the day/night. Who knew?
Once you finally identify the color that you makes you swoon each time you pass ‘er by… ding, ding, ding, you have found a winner! Choose that color and run with it… well, after you pay for it of course.
