Just choosing a paint color is reason for rejoicing — but with so many swatches in the rainbow, things get dizzying quick. With the help of Maxwell and Glidden® paint, Sarah and Sam, Priya and Jamie, and Bonnie committed to color and had fun doing it. One reason why? Glidden paint's curated and totally manageable color palette. Since the experts at Glidden paint have done the hard work of narrowing things down (who needs 16 shades of violet?), you can find your perfect paint without paint-swatch fatigue.
For Sarah and Sam, that also meant looking right under their noses — you might be surprised to find the perfect color is already in your home, from your throw pillows to your pot holders. Scope your space for the colors that speak to you, then let those stand-out hues be your guide. Once you're on the right track, head to the Color Visualizer on Glidden.com, a virtual room where you can audition your favorite choices.
Priya and Jamie didn't have a problem embracing color — the question was which one. If you're in a similar bind, take a cue from the couple and look to your travels: Priya and Jamie took color inspiration from their Indian wedding. Once you've got a few contenders, paint test squares of each on the wall or a piece of foam board — you'll get to see which ones look best in different lights, so that you know your final choice will work well in your room.
When Bonnie needed to vamp up her ho-hum bedroom in time for her boyfriend's move-in date, she hopped on Pinterest, a treasure trove of design inspiration. Once you get to pinning, especially at Glidden Paint's Pinterest Board, you'll discover which looks you gravitate toward. With so many fun ways to find the right color, you'll be painting — with confidence — in no time.
