Although, they been good to me. Say goodbye to yellow tone walls.
Saying goodbye isn’t always easy.
I will always have a love for yellow. It’s happy, it’s bright, cheerful and makes you smile. No doubt about that. However, we have had yellow walls going on over 12 years between this home and our Florida home. I am yellowed out. Not to mention, it photographs just awful. In person, it looks much prettier than what the pictures represent.
This is our family room in it’s latest state.
Picking a color for this room is a difficult and daunting task. I am usually very good at picking colors, but this room had me stumped. Finding the perfect color is a little less daunting with the Sherwin Williams Paint color visualizer. I was amazed at the results. I also knew for certain what I did not want. Here are some examples.
Gray area Pallet
This may be too stark white for my liking. I am thinking with all the color we have I never thought I would say a more creamier white color would be in my future. But I am definitely leaning toward lighter and brighter.
(The quality and pixels were lost in my upload, hence they are a bit hazy) You get the gist though.
This last color was probably my favorite choice out of the lot called Colonial revival tan. But do I really want tan?

To confirm color choices, visit your neighborhood Sherwin-Williams store and refer to their in-store color cards.
Decisions, decisions! As you can see picking colors can be a very difficult decision. I am glad this tool is available for us to color compare and help make that commitment. I think I have a lot more playing around to do. I remembered a few years back playing around on this site and I completely forgot about it until my friend Shannon was deciding what paint color to choose for her interior door and she shared examples. You can check it out if you like.
I hope we make the right decision. Some may say it’s only paint, but this room is not that easily corrected once painted. 24 foot ceilings are not that easy I tell you. Not to mention the window treatments have to be taken down and all the wall decor UGH! Wish us luck.
This was not a sponsored post, just something useful I thought I would share with my readers.
Please note, if you go to the color visualizer, and want to save your room, I simply sent myself an email. You will see that tool in the upper right hand corner. Otherwise, you can’t save your room color selections in bulk..at least not that I could figure out.
UPDATE: Family Room final color reveal
