Have you seen the new updated Pottery Barn color chart online?
27 very pretty Ben Moore colors!
Ben Moore Solitude AF 545
Not only do they show a nice size color sample, I love that they also included a room painted in this color:
Loving the visuals!!
(I don’t think I would have picked pink with this comforter.)
What I really like as a designer, is being able to show a client a example of a room painted in a color they selected.
But it has to be stressed, the color on the paint chip and then through the computer world onto your home monitor screen is not a very accurate representation of the actual color. Pictures do help visualize a concept, just not as accurate. Take for example the paint color above smoked oyster. If you look the color up in the fan deck it looks more like this:
Smoked Oyster 2109-40
Pretty different, huh? I guess the point I am trying to make again is to be sure to sample test the colors at home before you paint the whole wall. It is great to look at pictures for inspiration but be sure to investigate the color a bit before you paint a whole room with it.
Getting back to pretty pictures:
Monroe Bisque HC 26
Here is another misinterpretation of a color: Hillside green is a gorgeous color which you can see here.
Now there is no excuse to not be able to buy small samples.
All colors, including Aura, are now available in 15.75 ounce sample cans.
I think you will like looking through the rooms painted using Pottery Barn furnishings and accessories. Just be sure to sample!
Fan decks are available for a fee of $2 which you can order on the PB website. Or you can pick up a complimentary fan deck at Pottery Barn stores.
Has anyone bought the larger sample can yet? Is it too much? Comments?
