Whether you’re an experienced painter or a paint-novice, picking your paint color can be a challenge! Not only can it be difficult picking out a color that compliments your home decor and furniture, but one of the hardest things about selecting a color for your walls is the fact that you’ll be living with it for a few years at the most. A great way to express your personal style, changing up paint colors can spice up a room or bring a much needed sense of peace and calm.
