This is Why copying Pinterest or Houzz or a Friend's Paint Color RARELY works....
Most people cannot understand why, when they have analyzed and re-analyzed, and even copied a known color - that it doesn't work in their room
Lighting is key. How many windows to you have in the room? What directions does the room face. People don't realize this will affect the final outcome of their paint selection.
The type of light bulbs and the color of these light bulbs will also affect color outcome.
What most people don't realize that each directional wall will appear different during the same time of day. Our eyes adjust, so most don't see this.
As well, the colors will change through-out the day based on sun position and clouds. And You thought this would be an easy to just paint a room.

As seen here, bright midday sun will wash out most pale hues (top); that same hue will be flattered by softer, indirect illumination (lower left), while artificial light will add a warm glow to the wall color (lower right).

The Color Consultation Process:
Yes, I come to your home.
We work together, so if you want muted grays, great! Or, if you like bold colors, great! My role is to make sure your colors flow throughout the house, from room to room, and that the colors work with your existing furnishings.
After selecting colors, then I go back to order samples that are sent directly to your home.
You receive the samples in about 7 days.
There is NO MESS with my process, because you don't need to get out a paint brush. Sample sizes are 8" by 8" or 6" by 9" and they are yours to keep.
