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.
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!
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.
