When preparing to paint, be on the lookout for inspiring colors. Paint color hunting is a fun way to decorate your space. Anything you find beautiful can be used as inspiration. Nature, travel and fashion often provide the most interesting colors.
Nature and art:
Are you looking to repaint a room but don’t know what color to choose? Consider colors found in nature, art and fabric; the possibilities are endless, and they are beautiful and everywhere. Paint color hunting is easy and fun for those who like to decorate with unique and vibrant hues. Go outside or inside with a fan deck and an eye for interesting things. Wildflowers, leaves, butterflies, etc. anything beautiful will do and connect the item with your fan deck, color chart or paint store color chips. Take a picture of the item next to the matching chip for reference. Use that color for a room or house design update. Transforming your space has never been easier.
Travel is also a major source of color inspiration, whether it’s a road trip nearby or a far away destination these adventures allow you to collect extraordinary colors. Moreover, visit local paint stores when in other locales. Pick up paint chips, color charts and fan decks as they have colors and color combinations that reflect the spirit of the area.
Keep in mind, that while you may connect with certain shades on a fan deck, the actual paint color can appear differently in your space. Unless you have color chips made with actual paint (as opposed to ink), always get a draw down or sample paint quart first.
