Choosing interior paint colors can be the most difficult decision you will make when designing your space. Color evokes emotion, colors can be perceived as masculine or feminine, color can transform a space.
When choosing a paint color begin on-line, Benjamin Moore has a really easy to use web-site full of information. I like the section “Shop by Color”. Click on “Shop Now” at the top of the tool bar “Shop by Color” comes up on the left side giving you plenty of options to choose from. Make sure to check out Candice Olson’s Colors under “Designer Favorites” this new fan deck by Candice Olson for Benjamin Moore is a must have.
A couple of TIPS –
Light is a major player when it comes to choosing a paint color. Take home several chips of the same color from the paint store and place them around the room, this allows you to see the effect lighting has on the paint color in your space.
When you have narrowed down the color, buy a sample and paint a good size piece of your wall – 2 coats – and in a couple of different spots. This will allow you to really see how the paint will look throughout the day.
