How many of you struggle with paint color decisions? You see a beautiful bold color in a magazine and wonder what it would look like in your home. As a paint color consultant, I help people select a color they love that works in their home. Paint color is a very personal thing. What one person likes another may not.
I always start my paint color consultations with the question, "What mood/effect are you trying to create in this room?" I then give my color test to determine the client's comfort level with paint color. I also ask, "What's your favorite accessory in this room?" I use the colors in that accessory as a leading pattern to help me narrow down a color that will work. I also have to consider the direction each room faces, lighting, furniture, flooring, and other permanent fixtures in each room.
In today's post, I show some "before" and "after" photos of rooms that have been transformed with color both for me and my customers. Keep in mind that color has to fit the room and be a hue the client likes. All recommended colors are by Sherwin -Williams.

|Client's Bedroom After - Halcyon Green - SW6213|

Doesn't this master bathroom look inviting? I chose Rainwashed to create a more relaxing retreat.

Client's Foyer After - Walls - Wheat Grass SW6408
Niche - Brassy SW6410
I decided to use Wheat Grass, SW6408, on the walls to make the living room,kitchen and foyer flow. I used Brassy, SW6410, as an accent color in this niche. This is the first thing you see when you enter the home. The homeowners loved it.
