Picking colors is a problem for me. I know what I like and what I don’t like, but I struggle choosing where to begin and what colors can be used together. I rely on copying existing combinations where possible.
We’ve been in this house since 2013, and many of the walls still have just the builder’s flat paint. We painted our kitchen last year. We are painting my “office” space now.
We do get samples (and they are worth it for me who loves something in the swatch but hates it on the wall). It took 6 options to pick one. Today I started taping and got a little carried away. The walls on either side of that entryway are going to be painted. They don’t need to be taped. Thankfully painters tape is designed to come off easily.
