More Victorian

When deciding on paint colors for a house,  people usually end up sampling many colors to find the right ones.  I used the software from Dunn Edwards paints to "preview" the paint colors for the Victorian I am working on, as mentioned in the previous posting.  It's not exact but definitely helps give an idea as to how the finished product could look. It's great to have when painting patches on the wall just isn't cutting it.

Here are some before pictures with the proposed pictures to compare with. Later, I'll compare them with true "after" pictures which will look much better than these.

Hi Rebecca! hope you are well...Sherwin Williams has some great cards that show specific colors of eras (you may know these already)...such as Victorian, mid-century modern, suburban 70's etc. They are really great because they mix and match the colors - I think you might like them! have fun and look forward to more pics of the job! :))

Yes! Those are great! My painter prefers Dunn Edwards and I'm so used to using them and Kelly-Moore I forget to branch out to other brands.

It is so hard to tell from painting on swatches sometimes isn't it. The colours look like they're going to be magnificent on that gorgeous house!

The software is certainly a great tool to use.
