Friday Fun: Playing with Color

Needless to say with baby on the way I've been looking at colors quite often. Then again I like color anyways with the various art I've done over the years. Right now I'm pretty happy with the color for the top wall and the trim. The bottom wall was giving me issues for awhile. I think I've found a color I like, I just need to stop by the hardware store for a chip since I've only viewed said color on my computer.

That being said, I've been having fun with the Personal Color Viewer from Benjamin Moore paints. Granted how the colors appear on the computer will differ from actual paint colors, but it is still nice to get a general sense of how various color combinations might look in a room. I like how they have sample room pictures already in their program or you can upload your own pictures. So far I've only been playing with the sample pictures.

This is one of the sample rooms I colored. Here's to hoping it loads alright. I used the share to twitter option then copied the link here. I had tried sharing to Blogger which my browser didn't like. I was thinking that it might be fun to color rooms for my characters, or even to play with the colors then think what type of character might reside in that space. Then again playing with the colors is fun on it's own aside from fictional characters.

On a side note, if you do want to use this to help pick out colors for a room you want to paint jot down the color numbers or names. The application allows for switching between color names and numbers. I had spent awhile with my nursery colors then the website had trouble saving. (If you create an account you can save the various projects to your favorites, to access anywhere you have a web connection). It might have been my browser.

It's so much fun to fix up and decorate when a baby's on the way! But I hope you're getting help with the painting & moving of furniture!

It is fun, especially the color part. Between my husband and the rest of my family I'll have plenty of help painting and moving stuff.

I would love to have a reason to design a room. HGTV is...often on in my house. Lol.

Congrats on the little one, by the way, if I don't remember to say it again.

See you around Twitter. :) @PureText
