Moving on to the guest bedroom! Here’s a little secret about me: I’m colorblind. Not fully, I still see in color but sometimes I don’t catch the undertones in some swatches that I look at because I’m red/green colorblind. That makes our paint selections quite… interesting sometimes because a color that jumps out at Joey could look bland to me or vice versa. By the end of the trip to get paint, we usually end up staring at one another in the store and leave empty handed!
I have recently discovered Sherwin Williams’ app called the ColorSnap Visualizer and man, this thing helps me out a TON. It’s so nice to actually be able to see the colors I like virtually displayed in a whole room because that way, I can get a better idea of the tones since it’s shown on a bigger scale.
I was playing around with colors and settled on a color called Cocoa Whip. Here’s what it looks like in the app:
It’s definitely a lot darker than I thought it would be, but I still like it! The room is not that big, so I want it to feel cozy but not too smashed. I love how it makes the white trim pop, giving the room crisp, fresh lines.
The color also has to work well with Gale Force, since they’re going to be right up against each other. I want the transition to be natural, not like I’m walking out of one house and into another. For now, this is the front runner! If I still like it by payday on Friday, it’s probably going to be a green light.
Any particular Sherwin Williams colors you love that would complement my hallway? Do share!
