Good Idea: Carrying Paint Chips When Gizmo Shopping

Good Idea: Carrying Paint Chips When Gizmo Shopping

We were perusing Real Simple today and got stuck on one of their clever ideas. The editors suggested stashing paint chips of your recently redone room in your wallet in case you find a piece of furniture you're interested in. We thought this was a great idea for those of you shopping for electronics. Obviously specs and quality are most important when buying a home theater or computer monitor, but hey, you want your new gizmo to match your latex paint as well...

Take the Sonneveld house in Rotterdam as an example. A white phone paired with these 1933 metallic brown walls and avocado shelves would be gagariffic. Black was the way to go.
