Rules on selecting a color

When looking for a color you’ll find a variety of shades and tints it offers.  With endless variations of a hue it’s important to keep some basic rules in mind when selecting.  Here’s my list:

1-Have a selection of samples to look at.  It’s important to understand and visualize how the color will work.

2-Relationships-yes even with color.  How will it work in the room?  What other colors enhance and develop the look you’re going for?

3-Look at the bigger picture, how does it relate to the rest of the home?  Does it offer a cohesive flow?

A quick look at how one color can vary.

Enjoy and thanks for viewing!
