Experimenting with colors with #PaintFinder

My uncle who was a contractor used to often tell me
Getting the home painted is like getting married.Once you have made a choice you have to live with it (for quite some time). So its better if one can figure out what the painted walls and homes would look like without having to spend a penny on buying paint. This just got possible thanks to the #PaintFinder feature from the Bed Bath & More website Here one can just pick a shade of paint and see in real time what a room painted with the color would look like Take for instance getting the bedroom painted lilac or pink is not like picking up a paint and keep your fingers crossed and hope it turns out just as the color that you wanted .Its not just about colors one can pick from  pre created themes or create your own theme

for example I have been always very fascinated by the color “Lavender” however I had no idea if it could go with the theme of my home and if my family members would approve of it so I tried the themes section from the Bed Bath & More website Luckily it had a lavender theme that I could try before I bought the real paint. I could save this theme,share it and get some opinion from family and friends and even create my own theme.

When I tried it the process involved clicking of a color to select it. This is the color that I wanted to try


it selects the color

and then choose a room to apply the color which in my case happens to be the living room.


Or try a variation of color till I find that perfect color to set the right mood in my bedroom or living room. Luckily for me my family members approved of my choice of the color combination and theme selection. If not then we would have went back to the #PaintFinder from the Bed Bath & More website. As we debated a lot about our living room and then finally arrived at a look for our living room. Had I told my family that I want to get the living room painted in the color “Grape Popsicle ” they would have freaked out and rejected the idea however when I used the #PaintFinder from the Bed Bath & More and applied it to the theme of a living room I got the following result




Needless to say that there was unanimous consensus in picking up this color. In both my above color selection I have gone by visual appeal. I pick a color that looks good. Earlier I was limited to pick safe colors for my house as I did not know how the more vibrant colors would look like in my home.With the #PaintFinder ,the process of color selection has become not just easier but also more options are available to us as one can find various colors from different brands all under one roof or better still under one website  to be tried and applied on the walls of our home in a virtual setting. This way we get a realistic view of what the final effect is going to be like.

After all life is all about experimenting and finding the right mix and balance. So when it comes to choosing the right shades and colors for my home why should it be any different? The process of picking a color from a shade card and buying a color only to find that it is not the right color or shade when you have invested both time and money adds insult to injury specially when it stares back at you every time you walk past the wall and it did not turn out to be the way you intended gives you the feeling of having a sore thumb sticking out that is going to stay that way for quite some time. With the #PaintFinder from the Bed Bath & More its all about picking the right color and paint and see it unfold its magic in our homes.
