Interior Design Paints: Our Project Paints

We often receive questions about the paints we use in our projects and thought we’d round up a few of the most requested. Before we get started, let’s go over a few interior design paint selection fundamentals.

When it comes to selecting a paint color, consider the lighting and other color elements within a space. Light reflects off surfaces and can cast an unintentional hue, so beware. The color you see in a picture or on a paint store swatch card can look drastically different once it’s in use. Always make sure to test the colors you are considering directly on the walls or cabinetry, before you take the plunge and commit to buying multiple gallons. It helps to look at the paint samples throughout the day to observe the colors under different lighting conditions.  Most paint vendors offer smaller sized can options, so you can try the paint without the full commitment.

Now that we have the basics out of the way, here are our most requested paints!
