Just a word of precaution–if you at all value your time, don’t use the Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer. It’s a rabbit hole of paint, people. Five hours later you will look at the clock in disbelief. (Then you’ll go back to playing with paint.) But, if you decide to ignore my advice, you may want to use my technique and leave small strips of original wall paint visible. I tested out some colors that ended up not looking much different from what I have on the wall, even though the little chip on the fan deck made me think they were worlds apart in terms of hue and undertone.
For my sister in law, most of the dark colors appear olive on her end. That’s a monitor issue because in real life the paint chips are all different and, with the exception of Superior Bronze, none of them are remotely olive. Kind of a bummer, since I would have valued her opinion. Do you see a difference in the colors? Which are your favorites? You can say none of the above! Trust me, I have many, many more paint colors to play with.
