Color Tools

pick the perfect paint color ebook thumbnailI love to talk about color and clients constantly ask me how to pick the perfect paint color. To answer that question and more, I wrote an e-book: How to Pick the Perfect Paint Color.  In this short e-book, you’ll find lots of tips for choosing a paint color you will love every time you walk in the room, and resources to help you understand what colors speak to you and why.  If you love color as much as I do, I hope you will love this book.

Color has a powerful affect on our emotions. Pink, in small doses, is relaxing and can lower the heart rate,colorful books blue can suppress appetite and red can create anger.

Choosing paint colors for your home can be a daunting task. But done right, color can completely transform your home.

Most of the major companies now have color tools on their websites where you can select colors and virtually “paint” your rooms. One of my favorites, from Benjamin Moore, allows you to upload your own photos to get a visualization of how the paint colors will look in your space.  There are a lot of people out there who really have no idea about what colors they like. PPG Pittsburgh Paint has a fantastic color game called Color Sense that determines your color scheme after answering a series of questions.
