Perhaps you’ve heard of Akzo Nobel and Glidden Paint’s newest site, My Colortopia, a site dedicated to helping you choose the right paint for the job. And, My Colortopia has an advice column authored by a squad of bloggers at the ready to answer your questions. Wondering what sheen to go with? My Colortopia can help. Need help choosing the perfect color? Don’t fear, they have answers.
Answer seven simple questions about yourself. For each question you answer, two paint colors will be added to your selection.
The last question whittles down the results based on your preference for soft or bold colors.
But that’s not the coolest part (in my opinion). Click any of the colors and you’ll get coordinated color palettes.
I’m more of a bold color person and I think the blues and brown colors fit me well. And that got me thinking. I have versions of nearly every color in our house. My favorite option was Pale Jade (the top right swatch). Our guest bedroom is painted a similar color and it pairs wonderfully with chocolate brown, like the rich wood headboard. Toss some teal or peacock in for more fun.
In our smaller basement bedroom, we’ve added splashes of fuchsia for drama.
If pink isn’t your favorite color (Aerosmith anyone?), try various shades of green or orange to spice things up.
Of course my office is painted a deep brown and our living room is currently a warm tan.
If we didn’t already have these colors on our walls, I’m sure I’d run out to buy some of the colors shown. Try it for yourself; it’s fun.
