We’re proud to choose Sherwin William brand paints! On top of great quality paint, they also have tons of great advice and information on their website. We recently came across this information, and we think it’s excellent to pass along to our clientele.
#1. Use Your Favorites
When selecting a paint color for a room, draw inspiration from some of your favorite accessories – such as pillows, artwork and rugs.
#2 Explore ColorSnap®

#3 Unify Similar Tones
To ensure a smooth color transition, choose a color for a room, then paint the adjacent space using tones from the same color chip either two shades lighter or darker.
#4 Complement Feature Walls
It doesn’t take much color to punch up a space. A, nook, window bay or headboard can make a great feature wall – perfect for a strong splash of color to accent your room.
#5 Utilize Hallways
The end of a hall can be the perfect spot to feature an unexpected hue that might otherwise overpower an entire room. Encourage more than a passing glance by displaying interesting artifacts on a narrow console.
#6 Test Your Colors
To see how a color will look in a space, pick up a Color to Go® Paint Sample at your local Sherwin-Williams store, paint a section of your wall, and see how it looks in different lighting throughout the day.
#7 Note Light Sources
Color never stands alone. Whether it’s natural daylight or artificial lighting, light can dramatically change the appearance of certain colors. Viewing color samples throughout the day is always the best way to find colors you’ll love.
#8 Consider Finish
Try different sheens of the same color to help your space stand out. A high gloss finish gives this chest a unique look even when painted the same color as the flat-finished wall behind it.
