I always find that painting is (relatively) easy and affordable, once you’ve selected your colors, but the process of getting your choices narrowed down is the lion’s share of the work (and for those of us prone to fretting over design decisions, the potential stress, as well).

Serena and Lily have partnered with Colorhouse on a new color system that has just over 100 choices, meaning that the field is already narrowed down to a reasonable number of thoughtfully chosen potential colors that work well together.
