Whether you gravitate toward a color palette of Colonial classics, lively primaries, pale tints, tranquil neutrals or deeply saturated dramatics, you’ll want to test your paint or paints on the wall or surface it will color before making your final decision. That way, you can make sure your paint looks smashing at all times of the day and consider an array of contrasting color combinations and accents. You'll also know if the color choices you loved in-store still resonate with you on your own home turf.
