Favorite Paint Colors

We've found that one of many clients' most dreaded decorating tasks is the selection of paint colors.  Let's face it - walking into a paint store and navigating the thousands of possibilities, with labels including "Not Enough Chocolate Syrup Mom" and "Grandma's Refrigerator" (these are actual paint colors) - it's all too overwhelming!

Cue the super-helpful blog "Favorite Paint Colors".  Its premise is simple - a collection of real life photos from readers featuring their rooms, labeled by paint color.  So if the one inch square swatch at the paint store isn't cutting it, head on over to Favorite Paint Colors to see what your room might really look like before committing to Kitten Whiskers or Sassy Grass Green.
