Finding the perfect color

Lets face it, picking a paint color is hard, 
 I have been known to dwell over paint colors for weeks.
In frustration, I would pick one out not sure if it was the right choice.  Sometimes it would work, other times I wasn’t so lucky.

Recently I have allowed myself to be inspired  by something first.  Sometimes it is a piece of art, other times a piece of furniture or even something as small as a pillow.
Let’s take for instance this chair. 

Before I started working on the loft transformation, I had purchased the chair. That simple piece of furniture was my my inspiration piece and helped guide me into the right direction for choosing my color sheme for this space.

 I used the chair to find paint colors
that had the same tones. 
Here is what I came up with:

Benjamin Moore™ HC-80 Bleeker BeigeBenjamin Moore™ OC-45 Swiss Coffee                                         

        Swiss Coffee for the cabinet, Bleeker Beige for the walls and my own mix for the back of the shelves.
Which brings me to talk about My Colortopia.  I am sure many of you have already heard of this incredible company but did you know about their fabulous tool called
My Life, My Colors?
 You are asked several questions to help determine what colors suit you and your personality best and then it will come up with a color palette for you based on your answers!
So Cool!
I have added the My Colortopia widget below so you can take the short quiz and be on your way to picking the perfect color for you and your home.

I can’t wait to see what My Colortopia comes up with for you!!

  1. That's so much fun! How did you get the widget? I'd love to let my followers try it too!

  2. I paint. Then repaint. And I have been known to repaint a 3rd time too till I get it right. Hardest thing for me is getting the color right.


  3. Love your color choices, Kristin. Very calming and classy. I saw your chair yesterday and thought of you. That is a fun tool to try our with Colortopia. Have a good day.
