GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Find the perfect match for your walls! When it’s time to paint the options are endless so start with your favorite piece of furniture. Use a swatch from your accent pillows or chair fabric to help you decide on a coordinating color. Narrow down your choices then buy a small amount of each to paint some sample boards. Hold the boards up in the space and next to your furniture.
If the choice between two colors is difficult, set one of the boards up and hide the other. Look at the board at different times of the day when natural lighting is different. You will probably start to feel more comfortable with one. If not, don’t worry. You will eventually find the right color. Remember, it’s just paint.
A perfect match isn’t always the best wall color choice so allow at least one of the sample boards to be an imperfect match. It just might be the spark that gives your room that non-formulated designer look.
Have fun, get creative and find a paint color that suits you and your space.
