Gravity is my friend! :)
Most decorating blogs that I read tape about 50,000 color samples to the wall to decide which color is best for their room.
I go to Lowe’s and pick out the prettiest sample. I walk away for a few minutes and then come back and pick out another pretty one. It’s usually the same color. I take that color sample to the paint counter, buy a gallon, and head home to paint. It’s a science.
Say good-bye to Macademia and hello to Gravity…..
I tape everything….because I am the world’s messiest painter. I surprisingly didn’t make a mess. Go me! AND….I painted the entire room all by my lonesome. This was huge for me.
Luckily, Nate and I were on to this whole “decorating world going grey” thing in a lot of rooms in our house. I don’t know WHAT we were thinking when we painted this guest bedroom beige when the rest of the basement is grey. I think we were thinking that we just want to be done painting and we have some of this macademia color left.
It was later in the day when I took this picture but the bedroom grey now matches nicely with the darker hall grey.

And then I looked at the guest bathroom next door…..
Who wants to help me paint???
How do you pick out your paint colors? Are you a sample taper or do you just wing it?
