COLOR IS PERCEIVED IN CONTEXT. NOT IN ISOLATION
This is one of the first lessons I was taught when I started my color career and also one of the basic principles I teach my clients when I do a Color Consultation. Color is affected by what other colors it is surrounded with.
For those of you who have had a Professional Color Consultation with me before, you know that I always show you the suggested paint color by isolating it, using a large white poster board if you don’t have a white wall that I can use during the demonstration
One of the biggest mistakes that anyone can make when trying to decide on a wall color, is to paint tiny color samples on top of the existing old color in a house. The internet is flooded with images like that!
