DIY Inside: Trying out Wall Color

When we moved into our house 5 years ago, my interior style was based on neutral walls and pops of color through artwork and details. I painted an accent wall in our kitchen a cocoa color. The brown wall color has never really satisfied me and doesn't create an accent like it was intended to! So here's an easy way to try out wall colors without the commitment.

Photoshop or a computer photo editing program

Step 1: Take a picture of your existing room or wall that you will be painting.

Step 2: Upload photo to a photo editing program like Photoshop.

Step 3: Select only the wall(s) in the photo and "color" them in using a color that you love. Do this again (as many times as you like) with different colors. You will then have several "samples" to compare. This will help you narrow down the right color that will give your room the wow factor you've been craving.

Here are some colors I've been considering:

Happy painting,
