Choosing a paint color is hard.

We say this all the time. Unless you’re a professional interior designer who has had the opportunity to see how hundreds of colors really turn out when painted in an actual client’s home, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed.

We suggest your first step is to start with a brand. That’s right, nothing about color family or sheen, or what direction your room faces, just choose a brand. Preferably one you have local access to.

Picking a brand helps you focus and narrow down your color choices. Constraints are helpful when taking on a large project.
