How to Pick Out the Perfect Paint Color

    I’ve started doing that on the actual Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, etc. sites before I ever go to the store. Anytime I’m on a blog or see a photo where a paint color is mentioned, I look it up. It has really been an eye opener to color tones.

    OH! MY! GOSH! I know this is an old post but I started at your very first post & have been reading them all in order.. 🙂 That’s how much inspiration I get from you & Deb! It started on Instagram 🙂 This is THEE answer I have been searching for my whole life ! haha I have an AWFUL time picking paint colors! So much so that I often just leave the walls because I am SURE I wont be able to pick what I really have in my head. Thanks so much for this post! I am no longer scared to paint me walls & may start this very weekend!!

    Omg this is the best paint post I’ve ever read makes so much sense and could’ve saved me a lot of work throughout the years had I known lol. I’m the same with the white too. I literally just use the white out of the can haha. But I am trying to find the best creamy white to paint my bedroom. So I’ll want it to pop against the trim a little bit. But I’ll try this trick and I should be fine. Love you both and love your stories. Thanks for sharing your lives with us! Xoxo Cristina

    This is literally the BEST trick!! Also, I take my swatches out into natural sunlight. It’s WAY more true than harsh store lighting!! You ladies are seriously the best!! Hope that breakfast casserole was delish!! Blessings to you!!

    These are great tips. My study window faces the neighbors house. I painted the room RH Silver Birch. A subtle green colour. The neighbors house was gray. That gray reflected into the room and turned my walls blue. I was so disappointed. Nevertheless, I repainted Navajo white. The house sold and the new residents repainted a white with a pink undertone. So now my Navajo turns slightly pink. The room will never be right! 🤨
