The Art of Paint…

White-PaintGray paint

Many are confused about selecting the right paint color for their home.

We have experienced a sea of neutral paint tones for the last 15 years.  In fact it has been a sea of beige for a long time now.  Neutral still reigns, but the next fresh color direction are shades of white and gray.

The difficulty comes into play, even when we are thinking of selecting such simple colors of gray and white; and that issue is… the undertones.

Undertones

So when you are selecting white paint place a black piece of paper under the color chips that you are considering to make sure that certain shades that you like do not have red or blue undertones.

When working with gray use a sheet of white paper to see how those read.

Then after you have narrowed it down…purchase a sample amount.

PAINT SAMPLES

Apply color with brush to several walls to see how the light reflects off each individual shade before you make your final choice.

These steps will help you find that PERFECT shade for your own individual home.

Happy Painting!
