If you’ve read my blog long enough you know that I quickly bored with my spaces and change them up before the paint has had time to dry. It’s quite ironic because with everything else in my life I don’t like change but with interior design it’s an ever changing palette. We’ve been living in this room for less than a year now and I’m already dreaming of changing the color of walls. I’ve love the freshness of the white but I’m craving some coziness that I think a dark color would bring.
In the past I can’t tell you how many times I’ve run back and forth to the paint store buying gallons and gallons of new paint because the color just wasn’t right.l Glidden “gets it” when it comes to how tricky it can be to pick just the right shade and they’ve come out with yet another awesome tool to help. Their newest tool is called, “Color My Room” and here’s how it works…
First, you upload a picture of a room you’re considering painting.
Next you choose a color palette that “speaks to you”.
Then, upload a picture of a room you’d like to test out some colors on.
You then use a point-and-click tool to mark off the area you’d like to see a new color on. It looks involved but it’s really quick and easy.
Lastly, just click on the colors you’d like to sample and voila, file away what you like or quickly delete what you thought would look good.
No more running back and forth to the paint store for color mistakes.
I sampled half a dozen colors. Here’s a few examples:
Case in point…I LOVE this shade on a color card but seeing it on my wall is a definite NO.
