Paint color ideas

Anytime we decide to repaint a room, before any excitement can set in, there’s always the dreaded task of picking a paint color. How’s anyone supposed to make a selection when there are thousands upon thousands of options out there? Couple that with the fact that paint can look completely different from a paint chip once you finally get it up on the wall. Whew, we’re shaking in our boots just thinking about it!

To take some of the guesswork out of the process, we polled our most stylish employees to find out what colors they used in their home and love! Of course we still recommend painting a swatch for yourself before making your final decisions, but at least this will help you narrow down the field!

For more paint color ideas, see what shades we’ve used in our recent catalogs for inspiration!
