I've never been one for white walls. Everybody is different and some people just adore them and can't stand anything else, but for me, I really like getting some color on the wall. Ever since we moved into our place I've been contemplating when I would get to paint and what colors I would use. I still haven't completed this project, but I have been brainstorming colors. I know for certain that the living room, dining room and kitchen will all be the same color because they have connecting walls and I don't know if I'm comfortable breaking it up yet. Perhaps at some point I will want to change it, but for this first try they will all be the same color.
What I have done so far is get samples from Home Depot of the top contenders in order to see what I will like best. I picked three spots in the house and painted the samples so that I could see how they looked in different spaces and I also made sure to check in on them several times throughout the day so that I would know how they fancied with the brighter light and even no light at all.
I love the samples because they are pretty inexpensive, but easily showed me that the blue on the right there is baby room blue not grown-up blue. Yikes, that could have been a bad mistake... Actually it doesn't look to bad in the picture, but in real life ---- baby room blue....
Still haven't made a final decision as I have actually bought another sample can and painted a few sample spots with it. It's so hard to make a choice on something like this. How do you do it?
