Color Made Easy

Having walked through the dark tunnel of color selection and survived,

I have found some interesting sources to help you make your own color choices easier to see as well as understand. I know that color can make a dull room brighter.

Are you struggling with a “which-white-is-right” answer to your paint question? Whether you are confident and moving ahead, feeling more conservative or really in need of some cheering up, there is nothing like a touch of paint to create color excitement.
