Paint Colours (Image by missyredboots via morgueFile)

Walk into any major paint or hardware store and the paint colour cards display tones and hues in the hundreds.

Do you have trouble choosing paint colours? Do you take samples home and hold them against your walls, curtains, furniture?

I like to take the colour samples home before I decide, be it paint or furnishings. There's nothing like getting the samples out of the shop's fluorescent lighting and having them near your own things. I usually have a strong idea of what I want but I am a cautious person with decorating - after all you have to live with the results for a long time.
No trouble at all. I love choosing paint colours! I usually know what sort of colour I want, so it's just a case of refining the choice down to one or two shades in that colour and I do that with samples actually painted on the walls.
I have troubles when it comes to choosing anything!
Being use to colour for many years, and loving it....I am happy to say no problems in picking paint for rooms.
I do take a few colours home, but I also know if you choose a new colour, '' go one shade lighter''....if not 2.

It is a far different story once on the walls, and it has had time to dry!
Sometimes but I usually have an idea of what I want
Nope. I know what I like, so I usually just go with that.

Yes, for me choosing colours is an awful dillema. It was not so bad when I had a partner as there were two of us to decide, but on my own I find it incredibly difficult.

When I re-did my kitchen in my current home, the guy who built it, picked all the colours for me, including the paint, and i loved everything he picked. He has done a kitchen for me before, and knows I am not good at picking colours.

Yes! There are just too many to choose from.
