Good Questions: How Do I Match The Catalog Colors?

Good Questions: How Do I Match The Catalog Colors?

Hello AT,

I have spent the last two weeks picking out paint colors for my condo. I have choosen paint for my whole place except for the bedroom. I am completely color blind at this point. So, here are my questions:

1) When looking through a catalog like Pottery Barn, Room & Board or Crate & Barrel, and I see a paint color I like is there a way to find out the paint color and manufacturer? I have tried emailing Pottery Barn in the past and no answer.

2) If I uploaded some pictures of my bedroom could you post them to your readers for some suggestions?

Thanks a lot, Color-Blind in Brooklyn

Dear CB,

In answer to your second question first, YES. Send in pics. As for the first part, we have never heard of the catalogs having the ability to respond to questions like that, but you can certainly figure out the colors through trial and error. We have done it here.... The trick is working back and forth with color chips, paint on your walls and your picture. This can be a really fun process, but it does take patience. Short of that, send in the pics.

Anyone else??
