Color Inspiration Palette to do Daring Things from This Unique Source

The perfect color inspiration palette never eludes you, does it?  When you decide to paint a room does it happen like this?  You run to the paint store, pick one chip, get the paint mixed, purchase the paint, paint the room and voila!  The perfect color.

Probably not.

If you’re anything like my wife and I, you select a fist full of paint chips, take them home and hold each up in the room in different light comparing them to other elements in the room.  Study it for several days.  Maybe you return to Sherwin Williams a dozen times for more chips.  My wife takes them in the car with her and scatters them about the passenger seat so she can study them between stops.

Then, when you think you’ve narrowed it down to your top three, do you purchase the little sampler size and paint big swatches on the wall?  If you’re lucky, you purchase one of those three, if not, the process begins again.

So do we!

We love color and since we’re avid flower gardeners, we get much of our color inspiration palette from our flower garden.  We experiment with flower combinations in the perrenial garden and paint color combinations in our home.

So to make it interesting, we matched up some of our favorite flower combinations with paint chips to create some amazing paint color combinations to share them with you.
