    2. Pick your color based on décor and focal points in the room.

  • Choose a color that enhances the beauty of the décor in the room. Take some time to inspect the various colors in your decorative rug, wall hangings, furniture, etc. and play off those. In the image below the focal point is the wooden beams and doors.

    4. Make use of Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer.

  • Snap a photo of the room you like painted and upload it to the visualizer. SW Color Visualizer
  • Remember when using this tool it will not be an exact representation of how your room will look because the lighting in the room and the sheen you choose will play a big part.

    5. You will need to purchase up to 3 samples of the main colors you feel are a good fit.

  • Most importantly, apply the color samples on 3 separate poster boards so that you can move them around the room at different times of the day and night. Again, natural and artificial lighting will play a huge role in how the interior paint color will present which is why it is important to apply the samples to a sample board that you can move around and not directly to the wall.
