How do you test a color to see if it works in your space?
It’s incredibly important that you test color before you commit to it in your space. You may be surprised by what you don’t like and even what you end up falling in love with!
There are some different ways to visualize color:
- A handy tool like our Personal Color Viewer is a great way to get started. It’s a software program that allows you to upload a photo of your space and apply virtual color from our selection of over 3,500 colors.
- If you’re more tactile and want to see the color on your walls, try our Color Samples -- we’ve taken a beautiful selection from our entire palette and created 2 oz. samples that will give you a good idea of how that color will look on your walls. When using Color Samples, I recommend painting on white poster board or foam core to emulate a primed wall. It’s hard to see the true nature of Moroccan Spice if you paint it over the existing Navy Blue on your walls.
