Tips about sampling colors – on test boards

A test board allows you to sample paint colors in different situations, like corners.

Sampling Colors on Test Board

Paint color can transform and revitalize your home.

Sampling the color first in the intended space ensures the color will create the desired effect. Rather than painting directly on the wall, use test boards to avoid regrettable painting mistakes. Some paint manufactures offer a small can of paint to be used as a sample; it allows you to test out colors without the commitment of buying a whole gallon of paint.

Advantages of using a test board:

Avoid time constraints. A test board allows you to paint colors without the obvious markings on your wall. Avoid obvious signs of the incomplete project by keeping ideas scaled down to test boards.

Test Board

Ability to move. A test board has the advantage of being mobile. Test the paint in multiple lighting situations by moving the test board around the room. View the test board behind draperies, behind the couch, in corners, next to windows and around all surface areas. This will give you an idea if colors contrast or complement and give you confidence in your decision.

Shopping partner. Once you have dutifully selected the perfect paint color, you can bring the color to the store with you to partner with other items. The test board gives you a realistic impression of the color in your room – super helpful!

Day Dreaming – This palette is a continuation of the Color of the Year pastel theme, with colors that evoke thoughts that are light and weightless….in contrast to the heaviness of day-to-day stresses. A key here is that other colors, such as Yellow Iris and Nile green, are used to expand on the blue and pink.

At Ease – A step from Day Dreaming , At Ease is grayed down for more of a sophisticated feel. A variety of ever popular neutrals, both cool and warm, are blended with muted tones in a way that seems effortless.

Native Instincts – Style-wise, current and future forecasts point to a homogenous mix of design and color where a piece of Native American pottery is compatible with a Turkish kilim carpet and/or a pre-Columbian artifact. This palette offers bold colors like a smoky orchid.
