Find your perfect paint colors

Confession: I kind of have trouble decorating sometimes. Don’t we all? I mean I’ve been told I have “an eye” before but I don’t really know if I do. I mean, I know my creative brain works extra hard and often takes over most of my brain power! haha! One problem I have however is the ability to come up with a color palette on my own. I usually browse pinterest or some of my other favorite blogs and pick some of my favorite rooms in their houses and use their color schemes and put my own spin on it.  
I was looking at Vintage Revivals and came across a post of Mandi’s about Sherwin-Williams CHIP IT! She did an awesome interview with a Sherwin-Williams paint expert and there are some fab tips! But, I kind of got obssessed with the idea of Chip it! It’s a program where you upload a photo… ANY PHOTO and it gives you up to like 10 color matches! I’m not affiliated with them in any way but I sure love the idea and I think you will too! 
Just for fun, I did some rooms in my home! 

I’ve kind of wanted to expanded on color choice in this room and I love the colors it gave me! The Cajun Red and Bakelite Gold would be a fantastic addition for fall. Maybe switch out some pillows? Hmmm… 🙂  I was thrilled that Mandi posted about the perfect grey and that’s what color grey I got matched with! YAY! I just knew it was perfect *wink*! Check out my full living room post here.

Same thing goes for my dining space and kitchen! I’d love to incorporate some Roycroft Copper Red in the cooler months to warm up the space.

YUMMMM!!! I love the color swatches they gave me here in my master bedroom! Auric and Suitable Brown are bomb.com if you ask me! It kind of reminds me of this outfit Savannah put together for me for a family party while I was in Arizona last month. Thanks for dressing me up Sav!

Then we have my craft room! This was one room that had no predetermined color palette. I just started going and the colors just all came together how I wanted. I LOVE this room and the color choices Chip It gave me are awesome!

 Finally, my boys’ airplane room. This is the perfect color palette for this room. It picked the exact colors I used in this room! I really think you can’t go wrong with this color palette for little boys!

Isn’t that awesome?? You’ve gotta try it! It’s kind of addicting! Check out CHIP IT here!

    Love Sherwin Williams not just because it is excellent paint…but for so much more. My husband has worked for SW for 25+ years!! And yes…the Chip It! tool is quite addicting and fun!

    Maybe it’s me, but it kind of looks like that program just regurgitates colors that Sherwin Williams has (with their names) based on rooms you like… so the maroon and yellow in that first photo is because the hallway looks maroon and red in that photo. Same with the rest of the rooms. Where I think this might come in handy is for said Pinterest-board-photos that you said you love, so you can translate the ‘color schemes’ you love into actual paint colors and schemes!
